Excellent and very cheap way of getting around Dubai. This is probably the cleanest metro I have ever been on. Most stops require some walk to and from where you want to go to but it's clean, fast and air conditioned and most have long walk ways giving you shelter from the heat. Definitely a must to use at least once. Recommend taking a cardigan to cover your shoulders (just in case) depending on where in Dubai you're getting to and from, like everywhere in the city,

I love the metro stations and how clean they are, the design and ambient feels as if we are living the future, like being in Star Trek movie

Great addition to Dubai is the Metro service. Easy to use, very helpful staff ready to give advise on what is best for the traveller, cheap and convenient for getting around Dubai. Very clean carriages and stations, made our stopover easy and relaxing getting to different locations in Dubai rather than queuing for taxis.

Air conditioned from the moment you enter the station, comfortable seats, separate space for women with children during peak hours, driverless (stand at the front or at the back of the train to have a nice view).
Buy a one-day ticket and have a long ride both ways outside peak hours, you will enjoy nice views.

Downside: quite crowded during peak hours. Trains in general come every 7 minutes and it may be insufficient at times (again, it can get crowded).

For Tourist:
I have travelled a lot and it is the most beautiful mass transit system i have seen so far. Stations are nice and clean and shinny and glittery and the staff is helpful.
It is the only metro system with Gold class.

For Daily Commuters:
Just like almost everything else in Dubai, it is just glittery and clean and expensive but useless in its main purpose to connect the entire city. Entire population on Al-khail road and emirates road are left out. It goes slower than a car and only has two lines and all this have cost of $9 billion attached.
