How to get around in Dubai (taxis, tram, walk, water taxi, metro, buses etc etc.)

When you enter in Dubai, the first thing you need to manage is transport to visit this charming city.

If you plan in advance you may start your journey without hustle and bustle.

Don’t worry about deciding a mode of transport is not a big deal because Dubai is quite inexpensive and have a lot of options “Public Transport” to move like Tram, Metro train, Water buses and taxis etc.

Dubai Metro Trains

Most reasonable, cost-effective mode of transport for the visitors as well as civilians too. If you choose any other public transport you will definitely be stuck in traffic in peak hours but metro buses save your precious time. Buses without driver are most convenient and clean as well as the security system is improved in these buses.


Metro buses are moving along two lines one green line and one red line.  Redline is the main route which mainly joins Al Rashidiya to Jabel Ali and the other route green line connect Al Qusais to Dubai Creek.

If you want to visit Dubai Mall, Marina, Burj Khalifa and Mall of Emirates then catch Red line route.
