Ride the metro to faraway places.It is much cheaper than a taxi and journey is comfortable. You can enjoy the view, riding the metro.

We took the Metro everywhere, an easy way to avoid Taxis and Uber. Plus public transportation allows you to see the details of the city. Also enjoyed our trip up to Old Dubai.

The metro during the day goes every 3-4 mins. But does not take you to the beach. Additionally, the hours written on the posts does not correspond with last train which made me stuck in the middle of nowhere once. It is written that metro functions until midnight yet the last trains goes around 23:30.

Such a modern clean metro system which is driverless and runs on time all of the time. The trains run frequently and cheap to use.

Good way to get to some parts of Dubai, but you will need to get taxis as well as the lines and stops are limited. Sometimes if you are a group taxis may even be cheaper. Good views from the trains. The gold class carriage is usually less crowded, but costs about double. Still very reasonable.

The metro station is good and the trains are very futuristic. However, we went on a Friday afternoon (1:30PM) where it was rush hour as we came to know that Dubai has a half-day on Fridays in offices.

The trains look nice but very crowded. One nice thing is everything is A/C whether or not the Dubai Metro station is in a tunnel.

I recommend you take the metro at least once in Dubai. It beats taking a cab to most landmarks, as they are only a few minutes walk from them. The price is very reasonable.

Great futuristic looking Metro We were staying in business by and use the Metro most days to get to various locations around Dubai once you get to your station you could usually get a cab to where you are going to or you can walk if it’s not too far Metro is very popular seem to be always crowded when we used it not many seats so be prepared to stand for your journey but great value and a fantastic Metro systemVery reasonable prices as well
