The Dubai Tram has a fixed fare of AED 3 (approx. $0.82 USD) per ride, regardless of the distance traveled. Passengers must obtain a Nol Card to ride the tram; you can purchase one at any of the tram or Metro stations. A Nol Card is used by passengers to check-in and out of the tram by scanning the card at the platform screen doors. Typically residents of Dubai have blue, silver or gold Nol Cards, while travelers and visitors opt for red or silver. For passengers using a Red Nol Card, the cost is a bit higher – AED 4 per ride (approx. $1.10 USD). Children under 5 travel for free, while those over 5 will need a Nol card. Students can enjoy a 50% discount if they apply for a blue Nol Card.
