How to get the city center from the airport?
Bus and metro
To get to Dubai from Al Maktoum airport by public transport you can take the F55 bus to Ibn Battuta metro station (about 40 minutes) and then take the metro to the nearest stop to your hotel (about 40 minutes to Bur Dubai).
Buses depart from the airport every hour and the total journey takes more than an hour and a half, so we do not recommend this as the best option to get to the center.
The most common and the most comfortable way to get from the airport to the center is to take a taxi. The price for a one-way journey is around 140 AED (US$ 38.10) although it will vary depending on where you are staying.
