All About Qatar Metro


The Doha Metro is a new, state-of-the art, best in class automated rail network, running mostly underground and across the city of Doha. Doha metro will form the backbone of Qatar’s integrated public transport system promoting usage of public transport system in the country and key ingredient in the accomplishment of the Qatar National Vision 2030. It is set to revolutionize the way people move around Doha and its suburbs. It will serve most of the capital’s locations quickly and conveniently, making it a far superior option to the private car.

We have focused on providing accessible stations with distinctive branding, signage,  and digital displays inside and outside the stations. We provide live real time service updates, simple fare structure for our Travel Cards, as well as a handy mobile app with all the information you will need when travelling with us. Doha Metro is your answer to safe, convenient, affordable and stress-free travel around the city of Doha.

It has 17 currently active stations (Legtaifiya will open next year), notably West Bay QIC, Katara and Qatar University. The Red Line has two interchange stations for the metro lines – Al Bidda for interchanges between Red and Green and Msheireb for interchanges between all three lines. It also provides interchange stations between the Metro and Tram with Legtaifiya (opening next year) and Lusail QNB.

The Green Line runs east from Al Mansoura to Al Riffa in the west. There are eleven stations along the line with notable stops being Education City, Hamad Hospital, Al Shaqab and Qatar National Library.
