Getting a Dubai Metro Monthly Pass

Step 1: Obtain an NOL Card

NOL cards are required for all monthly passes. An NOL card costs AED 25, including AED 19 credit. You can get one at NOL vending machines in metro stations. Just insert AED 25 cash and follow instructions.

Step 2: Register Your NOL Card

It’s highly recommended to register your NOL card to your name. This links the card securely to you for balance protection and lets you block the card if lost.

Register at a NOL card service desk in metro stations or on the RTA website. You’ll need an Emirates ID card or Active RTA profile.

Step 3: Purchase Your Monthly Pass

Bring your NOL card and payment to a NOL card service agent at major metro stations. Let them know which monthly pass you want.

The pass will be activated and loaded onto your card. It becomes valid on first entry tap at a metro gate during operating hours.

Using Your Dubai Metro Monthly Pass

Tap your NOL monthly pass card on metro entry/exit gates

Gates will show 30-day validity period confirmation

If expired, use ticket office/vending machine to renew

Don’t let anyone else use your registered monthly pass. If misused, your card may be blocked and benefits lost.

Report loss or theft of pass immediately to prevent unauthorized use. You can request a replacement monthly pass by visiting the RTA website or calling 800-9090.

  • Managing Your Monthly Pass
  • Check Pass Expiry & Renewals

Check your monthly pass expiry by tagging your NOL card at any metro gate. To renew, simply purchase another monthly pass from NOL machines or offices before the 30-day validity ends.

Unused days don’t carry over, so time new pass purchases carefully each month.

You can only cancel unused metro monthly passes – this must be done on the same calendar day purchased.

To upgrade to a higher zone pass, bring NOL card to metro office after using for at least 5 trips so agent can process refund and upgrade purchase.
