Living in Dubai: Transportation
Driving in Dubai can at times be challenging as many drivers are known to speed, which can make others on the road nervous. If one is not comfortable driving, taxis are on call and generally inexpensive – a good alternative to driving yourself. Public transportation is also available, but it may not take you as far as you need to go and schedule times can often be inconvenient. The metro however, built above ground, should be ridden at least once to get a great view of Dubai and runs almost the full length of Dubai’s main boulevard, Sheikh Zayed Road. This short video offers a great overview of transportation in Dubai.
