Dubai Metro lets passengers travel from one end of the city to the other for price as low as Dh 5.80 thus making it affordable, convenient and a luxurious ride. A unified multi-modal ticketing system has been introduced in the form of an NOL Card which is basically a pre-paid transport card. Nol in Arabic means fare. Dirhams can be pre-loaded in the card and balance can be used to travel on public transport (buses and water bus) all around Dubai as part of the same journey without extra charges.
