We werw staying in the Dubai Marina and decided to go to the Old Town. Taking the metro didn't seem to be the best alternative, given the distance, but it turned out to be a great experience. Very modern infraestructure, offering good views to the different passing buildings. But also the metro itself is an interesting construction.

In Dubai, we do not have any problems with transportation especially if you stay near the metros. NOL card can be used in all public transportation, that is, Dubai Metro , Dubai tram, Dubai RTA buses and RTA ferry boats. The Dubai metro has green and red lines. The green line network runs from Etisalat to Creek and vice versa.... More

Good way of travelling. If you planning to go to dubai mall via metro, you gona need to walk like 20min from the station to the mall. You are already tired when you reach the mall.

We used this to move around Dubai. The stations and the train are world-class. There are two line with two interconnecting stations that allow you to travel most of Dubai. It's well connected to the tram system and the monorail (expensive) to Palm Jumeirah and Atlantis.

The Dubai metro is a good way to enter the city, but the 2 lines are limited and only serve a limited area around Sheikh Zayed Road, continuing to Deirah and the airport terminals. On peak moments it's also overcrowded and people can be very rude and unpolite to let you in or out the trains. Though it's fast, mostly... More

Taxis are cheap in Dubai but the traffic can be horrendous. If you can use the metro, it's cheap fast and efficient. What more could you want.
