During road rush hour and weekends, it is really convenient and can bring you near any of the main places in Dubai. Take the gold class, not very expensive but much better!

For the first time I used Dubai metro in DEC 2009 and it was nice surprise. This time (DEC 2014) I was a bit disappointed (having experiences with metro in New York, Vienna, Prague, Budapest, Hong Kong, Beijing, ShenZhen, Singapore etc.) how not tourist friendly Dubai MRT can be for buying tickets. Stations, train, access roads with moving walkways, time table (except Friday morning - metro opens from 1pm!) etc. very good but buying ticket could be an adventure. So try to study all information about prices, zones, terms before starting to buy tickets, prepare small change and hope there will be a cash desk open at the station. If You will be lucky buy ticket at cash desk. If no there are 2 or 3 vending machines (if 1 or 2 are not broken temporarily) and hope the machine accept Your banknotes and coins, You choose right station, right number of zones ... and the crowd behind You will be patient with You. As in other metro buying tickets is job for seconds (even in Beijing), in Dubai can be job for long minutes. And price for ticket can be higher than You used to pay at home (DEC 2014 for 4 station one way journey cross between to zones USD 2,2/AED 8).

The metro stations are huge and beautiful, frequency is 15 minutes, well maintained but very costly after the recent increase in fair. Having worked in Delhi (India) I am bound to compare with Delhi metro and I am happy to say that Delhi metro is much better in terms of frequency, space and prices. Yes, Dubai metro provides more comfort and stations are better built but doesn't mean you will charge the traveler for that.
