Visitors can travel around Dubai via taxis, public transport and abras. If you would like to hire a car during your stay in Dubai, we are happy to make the necessary arrangements.
Dubai has a large, modern fleet of metered taxis. Drivers rarely carry much change and it is recommended that you carry AED 10 and AED 5 notes with you.
The Dubai Metro consists of two lines (Red and Green) which cover the main populated areas of the Emirate. The Red Line runs parallel to Sheikh Zayed Road and can take you from the airport to Jebel Ali on the other side of Dubai.
Small motorboats called abras are the ideal way to cross Dubai Creek from early morning to late night.
There are two routes - one links Bur Dubai with the Deira Old Souk and the other links the Old Souk with Sabkha on the Deira side. The fare is AED 1-2 per person per journey, payable in cash only.
