A Map of Dubai's Metro along with metro stations

Using the Dubai Metro is one of the best options for getting around the city.

It opened for public on 10th of September in 2009 and since then it became the residents’ and tourists’ favorite modern transportation.

Currently, it has a total of 75 kilometers long track with 47 stations (including nine underground stations) and with these numbers it has become the World’s longest fully automated metro network.

Traveling by the driverless metro is completely safe and quite cheap compared to any other city’s public transportation.
