Palm Monorail Tickets

Palm Monorail Tickets

Palm monorail trains leaving the station

The Palm Monorail operates its own ticketing system and is not integrated with any other public transport system in Dubai.

It is run by Serco and they set their own fares for travel on the monorail.

Buying tickets

You can buy single and return tickets to any of the stations, depending on where you wish to travel.

There are ticket machines at the stations and also a booth with an operator who you can buy tickets from and who can answer any questions you have.

No Nol card

You do not need to (and in fact you cannot) use a Nol card on the Palm Monorail, you can just buy your tickets with cash (you can’t currently use a credit card for payment).

No advance tickets

You also cannot buy tickets in advance you just turn up and buy at the ticket office at the station.

Ticket Prices

The prices for the Palm Monorail tickets are as follows:

Gateway to Atlantis (and vice versa)

Single trip: 20 dirhams (increased from 15 dirhams with effect from 4th July 2017)

Return trip: 30 dirhams (increased from 25 dirhams with effect from 4th July 2017)

Gateway to Al Ittihad Park (and vice versa):

Single: 10 dirhams
Return: 15 dirhams

Atlantis to Al Ittihad Park (and vice versa)

Single: 15 dirhams
Return: 20 dirhams

Tickets purchased are only valid for travel on the same day. There are no discounts for group travel at present.

Child fares

Children who are under 110cm tall travel free on the Palm Monorail so it is height based and not based on age. There is a height measure at the ticket offices so that you can see if your child meets the criteria.

This may seem expensive compared to other forms of public transport in Dubai (you can ride the Dubai Metro all day for 20 dirhams) but it seems that maybe the Palm Monorail is aimed at present towards the tourist market.

As more stations opening the near future it is possible that the ticket prices will increase further so watch this space.
