When planning a holiday in Dubai, consider experiencing all the modes of transportation available in Dubai. Commuting in Dubai is one of the lifetime experiences in both ways either enjoyable or hectic because Dubai traffic has become worst these days. But Dubai has reduced the traffic conjunction problems by introducing the most modern and high-tech ways of transportation, the Dubai Metro.
‘RTA’ the Road and Transport Authority of Dubai manages all the modes of transport including metro and other facilities within the city of Dubai.
The Dubai Metro, the most preferred mode of transport is often cited as the world’s longest fully automated metro network. This driverless metro network in the city of Dubai comprises of Red Line and Green Line, which are operational and Purple line and Blue Line Metros are under development. The first two lines, which are operational, run underground in the city centre and on elevated viaducts elsewhere in the city. All trains and stations on these tracks are air-conditioned.

The bus transport infrastructure in Dubai includes eight well-attended bus stations, more than thousand bus stops, more than hundred and fifty wayside passenger shelters and point timetables at around 450 busy bus stops. All the buses undergo maintenance at three high-tech bus depots.
