Public Transportation in Dubai



As the city of the future, Dubai is well-connected by efficient public transport that helps locals and tourists to navigate the city, conveniently and inexpensively.

Metro
Famous for its fully automated rail system and driverless trains, the Metro is the first public transport choice in Dubai, fast, modern, and easy to use.

Bus
Reach most of Dubai landmarks and connects the majority of the attractions. It is less frequent than the Metro but still very reliable and relatively cheap.

Taxi
Very easy to find in the city, especially near the main attractions.

Abras
Sort of traditional wooden water-taxis, the best way to cross Dubai Creek.

Please note that in Dubai, women have different sitting arrangements. On the bus, they sit in front seats of the buses, and on the Metro and Tram, they have special cabins. There are also "Pink Taxis" driven by women and for women and families only.

More information about Dubai's public transportation, including travel cards and updated rates, can be found at Dubai's Roads Transport Authority.
