How to get to the top attractions in Dubai for less than Dh10 by bus in the United Arab Emirates 

Top destinations like the Burj Khalifa and Dubai Frame are accessible for Dh3 or even at no cost.

Dubai: You can visit monuments like the Dubai Frame, Burj Khalifa, or Dubai Miracle Garden for less than Dh10. You only need a Nol card to board a Dubai bus. Users of Dubai’s public transit can use the Metro, tram, and bus routes to travel to the emirate’s most well-known destinations. The typical bus fee is about Dh3, although because seasonal bus lines and the Hatta bus don’t make any stops and drive passengers directly to their destinations, they can cost a little bit more. You may simply make use of the public transport system to tour Dubai on a budget by using the bus routes listed below, which are from other public transport terminals such as Metro stations.


You must buy a Nol card before you set out on your journey. In every Dubai Metro station, there are kiosks where you may purchase it. A red, silver, or gold Nol card can be purchased, or you can purchase an unlimited travel pass that allows you to take several trips on any type of public transport, with the exception of buses that travel between emirates.


You must download the S’hail app from Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), which is available for both Apple and Android devices, if you want the most recent public bus times and route information. Using public transport in Dubai, commuters may plan their route using the app, which also provides an estimated trip cost.
