We took the Green Line in order to see the Grand Mosque and the Louvre museum. However most of the journey was on an uninteresting road with not much to see. Also it was very expensive especially given the fact that we were only able to properly see two of the sites/attractions on offer - we could have taken a taxi for less

The route can be continued every half an hour after getting off. The stop at the port is particularly helpful if you want to start from the cruise terminal. The mosque should not be visited around 14:00 - there are very long lines and the character of a mosque is lost with so many people.

There is transportation from the port to the first stadium, the green line takes about 2 hours if you don't get off. The red one about 1.75 h. It is very pleasant but also stressful if you want to see something. At the Yas Marina racetrack there is an extra bus line from Ferrari World. This is also included.
