The metro was inexpensive and very easy to use. We didn’t wait long. We went from the Dubai mall to the airport. But we have used it in the past and that was just as good. If you want they have carriages for women only.

Hi The metro can be a little crowded at fish hour. Yes definitely worth paying a little more for gold rates. The carriage is similar but less crowded.
