You will only appreciate the low Metro Fares when they increase the Salik Fares to push everyone to use the Metro.. I heard a rumor about a single Salik trip costing AED10 and car registrations fixed at AED5,000 or 10,000.

I live in sharjah, so for me I'll have to come to Qusais station to take the metro to reach DIFC. If the prices are going to this ridiculous I think I'm better off utilizing my car. Its not only Dubai who needs to get the hang of the road and transport systems, this should be implemented throught the UAE. Have to also consider other residents residing in other emirates!!!
Also, I agree with Noel, Nakheel executives get paid so well that 25dhs for the whole journey is 'reasonable'!!! Yea right!!!!

The Dubai Metro is a great transportation for people. The fees ranges between the Bus transportation and the Taxi transportation according to Dubai. It is a great deal for all people to go on a nice and comfortable transportation for workers, business men/women, students, and for everyone to ride on it. So please, use this great transportation that is made by the Dubai Government for a better life for us!

For Nakheel it would be 'reasonable' since their executives get excellent pay packets and what's more? For them it would be free! Even if it isn't, their salaries are so good that from a month's travel on the metro it would be a drop in the ocean for them.
DUBAI seems to be on the money making spree. Have they considered the poor and middle class. Obviously not!!!!
