The Dubai Tram tickets are the same that are available for the Dubai Metro. The price that you pay depends on how many zones you travel through. However, all of the tram stations in phase one are in the same zone (zone 2) so if you just make one journey on the tram, however far, you will only be charged 3 dirhams (if you are using a silver Nol card). You can use your Nol card to pay for Dubai Tram tickets and other methods of public transport in Dubai like the bus and the Metro.

If you don’t have a Nol card you can get hold of one at any of the tram or Metro stations, bus stations or RTA offices and also at many other locations including supermarkets. Nol card is the only way to pay for travel.

The price that you pay covers travel on the tram, metro and bus so you can travel on all of these and it just depends on how many zones you travel through.

The prices for single trip travel are as follows (these are the prices from 11 November 2014):

Ticket Type 1 Zone or <3km 2 zones 2 Zones 3+ Zones
Standard Adult Ticket (Red) 4 dirhams 6 dirhams 8.50 dirhams
Pre-paid Standard Adult Ticket (Silver Nol) 3 dirhams 5 dirhams 7.50 dirhams
Concessionary (Blue Nol Card) 1.50 dirhams 2.50 dirhams 3.75 dirhams
Gold Class (Red Ticket) 8 dirhams 12 dirhams 17 dirhams
Gold Class Pre-Paid 6 dirhams 10 dirhams 15 dirhams

Pre-paid ticket prices are those for silver or gold card holders, standard prices are for red Nol card holders.

New passes will also be introduced with the opening of the Dubai Tram and the prices will be as follows:

Ticket Type 1 Zone 2 Zones All Zones
Annual Silver Class 1,060 dirhams 1,770 dirhams 2,670 dirhams

Dubai Tram TicketsYou must remember to validate your Nol card by tapping it on one of the ticket readers both on the way in and the way out – otherwise you will be charged the maximum price for a trip or you could be fined if you do not tap it at all. The Nol readers are in all of the stations and there are plenty of them so don’t forget!

The Nol card reader will automatically deduct the correct amount for the fare from your Nol card.

    I am coming to dubai with my friend at the end of June this year and looking to know what the best option is for us regarding tickets/passes. We will be there for 7 days.

      Hi Luke, it really depends on how often you intend to use public transport. You can buy a weekly ticket for 110 dirhams which will cover you for as many trips as you like in that period on the metro, tram, bus and water bus so you will need to weigh that up against how many trips you might make each day as to whether it is worthwhile.

    Hi there,
    Just wanted clarification on checking in/out when using the NoL card. So say we are going To the mall of emirates, we tap in at media city, Change at dubai marina, get the mtro to the MoE, when do we check in/out? I’ve read the previous comments and it says only when you reach thr final destination. What if we check in/out for tram and then metro. Do you getcharged twice?
    Also i do my local grocery shop at the carrefour by. Mina seyahi. Does it charge me twice for coming and going or just 3dhs if you stay within the same zome?

      Yes you need to tap in and out each time you change. As long as you change within 30 minutes you will only be charged for one trip. If you are going to and from one place then yes you will be charged for 2 trips.
