By Metro

One of the best ways to get around the city of Dubai is the metro. Blue and Silver driverless trains take passengers around the city stopping at popular landmarks and neighborhoods. The Red line runs from the airport and serves 28 stations, stopping in downtown Dubai. The Green line has a shorter route with stops in downtown and Jaddaf a neighborhood along the Dubai Creek. All of the metro stations have taxi ranks located outside, so if you are not able to find a stop that goes directly to your destination, chances are you can get a short taxi ride to where you need to be. Hours of operation depend upon the day and line you are traveling on typically trains run from 6:00 am until 11:00 pm Saturday through Thursday but on Fridays the do not start until 2:00 pm and run until midnight. Passenger must purchase a Nol card to use on the metro, bus, and taxis. The Nol cards can be purchased at any of the stations. Fares run from around AED2.00 to AED6.50. For more information visit
