Hi, I am in Dubai and am trying to understand the Tram’s. Could anyone give me a rough idea on prices for many trips a day. I need to go from media city, to Jumeirah beach residence, to Marina Mall and back to Media city. Also a map would help? How does the paying system work, is it tickets and barriers like the Underground in London?
I would suggest, if you don’t plan on using it for more than a few days, to just buy silver day passes. These are 20dh for all zones. The paying system is similar to most of europe but different to London underground. You purchase your ticket at the tram station and you have to tap on and off when you enter and leave a tram. (Similar to those in Amsterdam). Don’t think you can get away with not tapping as you could be fined the maximum amount or a very expensive fine!
Here is the Tram map you will need: http://www.alsufouhtram.com/route-map/
