“The cleanest safest most advanced must see Metro”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

The first encounter was a short trip using Dubai Metro. I had a car but the ride was so enjoyable that I parked my car and used the Metro when ever I could.
It is for sure a must see experience. Metro in Dubai is so clean and so safe to the point you feel that you are in a small adventure park. Each station look like a space ship. The weather was hot outside but you do not feel it as Metro is air conditioned. You have nice small shops inside as well.
I recommend it for everyone specially families with children. it is a good learning experience.

Easy to use, cheap, fast and super clean. Try it once and save the taxi fare. Stops are well placed for sights and hotels

“Best mode of transport for short and longer distances”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Although very good for the shorter distance trips it is the longer distance where the Metro comes into its own. It is cheap(£2-£3 per day), reliable max 7 mins between trains, efficient - no traffic lights or roadworks, and you have taxis outside all stations and some have buses too to take you on to your final destination (i.e when you have to walk more than a couple of hundred yards in the heat!!). Watch out for late start on a Friday and earlier closing on weekdays which caught us out but you will never be far from a taxi and will never be stuck. There are long walkways between the metro station and Dubai Mall but they are all enclosed, air conditioned and have motorised travelators to help you along. The carriages can be very crowded especially at peak hours in the morning and evening but there are women and child carriages for the ladies which helps.

“Very Clean & Cheap”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Dubai Metro is very cheap and well worth it if you are going to one of the stops and the metro station is close to you.

The only problem was that we didn't get a seat on the metro on any of our journeys but that wasn't really a problem to be honest.

But very clean and cheap and on time no delay.
