Started using the metro last trip instead of taxis, wow we saved a fortune. Easy for tourists once you have mastered the ticket machine, which is not difficult and saves queuing. Cheap, safe, clean and reliable. Take note Manchester metrolink.

I do not know. We had only a day pass. The ticket agents are very helpful and may be able to guide you on the best choice.

Dubai is effectively and efficiently planned. Hopping from a bus stand to the metro is a stone's throw. It saves one from the desert heat. The EMIR cares for his people.
