PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION FROM AIRPORT
Trains run roughly every 10 minutes from Terminals 1 and 3. Services start 5.50am (5.30am on Thursday), and stop at midnight (1am on Thursday/Friday). Please note there is no service on Friday mornings and only starts at 1pm.
There are just two lines, making the network simple to use even for newcomers. Most stations have connecting buses and taxi ranks for onward travel. Most major hotels and tourist destinations are relatively close to a station.
You can buy your ticket at the airport stations. The cost depends on how many zones you travel, but is always extremely affordable.
Try the Nol card. It can be charged up with credit, and also gives you a discount on standard fares.
The front carriage on each train is 'gold class', for a small premium - kids will love the view through the driverless front window! There is also a carriage for women and children only.
Going from the airport
Follow the signs to the official taxi rank at each terminal, or ask our May I Help You team. The ranks are well organised, with taxis waiting 24/7.
There's an AED 25 flag charge from the airport. The charge for each km is AED 1.96.
Dubai Taxi Corporation offers a range of transportation choices for passengers, for more details visit their website.
Further to the above services UBER & CAREEM Taxis are widely available in Dubai.
