How can one go between Dubai International Airport and downtown?

Dubai International Airport is located about 3 miles from the city center. Taxis are plentiful and a cost effective way of traveling, including prepaid taxis from the airport. A taxi ride to downtown should cost no more than US$8 to US$10. On your return trip, be sure to flag down an official taxi run by the Dubai Transport Corporation, identifiable by their cream color and the presence of a meter, as unofficial taxis do not have meters and will require you to negotiate the fare.

Due to the proximity of the airport and downtown, many hotels offer free shuttle service. So, it's a good idea to check with your hotel prior to your arrival.

Six public bus lines serve the airport. Special Dubai International Airport Bus Service offers air conditioned buses with plenty of room for luggage. Buses are very inexpensive, with one-way fares of less than US$1. However, it's important to note that buses have separate sections for men and women.
