My Dubai Metro Experience

11 Sep

dubaimetro-img001I had to see Dubai Metro, ride it, feel it, enjoy it then share my experience with the world. I know it doesn’t need me to talk about it but it feels different when you share your personal emotions and thoughts as you go through your 1st experience with DubaiMetro.

Congratulation Dubai.

I am so proud and honored today of Dubai and the fact that I am a citizen of this great nation.

Today I went with my friend to the metro station at Emirates mall and took the metro to DIFC station then switched back. I have travelled to many countries all around the world and rode their train and metro systems; honestly, DubaiMetro is one of the top metro systems in the word in terms of technology and luxury. It was a short ride; I enjoyed it alot and will definitely do it again and again in the future because the Metro will truly be My Choice “el Metro E5teyari”.

Luxury, Comfort, Time Efficiency, Cost friendly; these words simply describe DubaiMetro. RTA did a great job in planning and executing His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum vision. Well done RTA; you deserve to be awarded for being on top of your field.

This metro is one of the most sophisticated metro systems in the world and the stations are no less. They are luxurious, clean, organized with many facilities that aides all kinds of people and provide 24hr security, first aid kits on board the metro and in each station.

To be able to use the metro; I bought “nol” gold card. There are different kinds of cards available which makes it affordable and obtainable by everyone. You might wonder why the metro tickets are named “nol”, I did as well. “nol” is the currency that Dubai sailors used when trading goods. It is not used anymore but it carries in its name Dubai’s history and heritage.

On board the metro, there is a section for Gold card holders and a section for women and children only as well. The metro seats are very comfortable and the view to Dubai city as the metro moves to its destination is amazing. On board there are at least one hostess in each Cabin assisting the passengers and gladly answering their questions. Being an IT person, I was very happy when I knew that Wi-Fi is available on board the metro; this allows everyone to carry on their work and/or enjoy the benefits of the internet as they ride the metro. This is what I call a World-Class service.

I loved the experience, and I took some memorable pictures of my first experience with DubaiMetro.

Don’t hesitate and try DubaiMetro. I am sure it will be as amazing to you as it was to me and you would make it your choice as well.

Enjoy the ride.

    I’m jealous! I was away at a course, and my husband took the kids. They just called from there, a bit worried as it had stopped unexpectedly for a few minutes, then heard them giggling as it started back up again.

    Thanks for sharing and mabrook once again to Dubai.
