Author: One of the hottest days I decided to study the infrastructure of Dubai, and in particular its transport component - the subway. Therefore, I sat down on one end of the station and drove across town to their hotel, which was almost at the end of branches.
If Moscow had the same beauty of the subway, I would every day hang there for 5-6 hours :) I suggest you learn more about Dubai Metro and ride on a trailer «Gold class» through the city. You see a building on the horizon? Soon we will have to doedem!
Dubai Metro - one of the few that is controlled automatically. You never see drivers on the trains simply because there is no cab :) But there is one very interesting car, which I will talk about later. And yet we go down into the subway to buy a ticket! Entrances to the underground larvae resemble the Alliance of the famous Half-Life 2, and these shells painfully remind me of seashells at the entrance to the metro station "Slavic boulevard"
Now it's time to buy a ticket! After some difficult combinations I get a one way ticket. Zaitsev is not here, and all because if you pass the station you want, or you reach it, you just do not release the protection or push the turnstile to you his sash. But do not panic! You can always wait for the train and get off at the desired station, and then you miss it!
Tickets there are two types: «one way» and «two way» - a one-way and round-trip. The price varies depending on the type of car and the path length. I rode in the Gold class from one end to another for $ 6. And now I tell you that I was impressed. At each station there are boards here, here you can share your impressions about the trip. Matt and obscenities were noted. Needless to say, that would be with this board, if it were placed here in Moscow?
Looking ahead, we show you how to look my station «Al Rigga»! The left and right elevators are installed, so that you did not go down the escalator and reduce the time for the descent! All stations are very beautiful and gives them a perfect gloss!
