Dubai’s taxis are readily available at any location. If you prefer to schedule a ride, call Dubai taxi pick-up at +971 4208 0808.

 If you prefer to use a ride-hailing app, you can book a ride through Uber or Careem.


Travel by Rail

Dubai Metro is a world-class and fully-automated, driverless railway system. The metro rides are above ground and offer a great view as you commute around the city.

Dubai Metro tickets can be purchased individually at ticketing machines or you can purchase a Nol card, which can be used to pay for bus, tram or even taxi fares.

Aside from the metro system, we also have the Dubai Tram which runs from Al Sufouh to Jumeirah Beach Residences. There is also the Palm Monorail, which traverses the trunk of the Palm to the iconic Atlantis, The Palm.


Travel by bus

There are more than 1,500 air-conditioned and wheelchair-accessible buses that circle the city, offering a good budget option for getting around. Pay for your bus fares with the Nol card.
