  • the stations and trains are aesthetically pleasing
  • the RTA's attempts to make the Dubai Metro part of a multi-modal system
But these points are found in many other automated systems. I'll just bring up Vancouver's SkyTrain System: aside from our fare structure, though it is incredibly convenient if you are travelling multiple modes in longer distances, it meets practically every point you have.

Let me first be clear on this, I'm quite jealous of Dubai's system, especially since it's taking away (or about to take away) the title of the longest automated system from Vancouver.

It seams the reason why many of the automated ticket vending machines are "breaking down" might be the currency notes getting stuck on them ...

I saw some videos where there's relaxing music playing in the back (through the train speakers) and in other videos i didn't hear it. When/where does the music play??

When I drove the Metro the music was playing during the entire trip(s). It was a repetitive one though.
