NOL is a single e-card, about the size of a standard credit card, which can be preloaded with any sum between AED 14-500 and then used to pay for your trips quickly and efficiently. You can buy the right NOL card for your purpose – there are 4 different kinds – at the ticket office of any Metro Station. Typically, a Silver NOL card costs 20 dirhams and it includes 14 dirhams worth of travel immediately available. That is sufficient for between 4 and 7 standard trips, depending on how far along the line you wish to travel.
