Doha Metro a boon for commuters

After the initial thrill and enthusiasm of a maiden journey on Doha Metro’s Redline, the attention of the commuters has now shifted to metro’s timing and the shuttle bus services that provide last-mile connectivity to the offices and residences.

Sources said most of the passengers on Sunday enquired about the frequencies of trains and Metro’s shuttle bus services to make best use of the new transportation network.

Speaking to QT, a Metro Service Staff at Ras Bu Fontas said, “Most of the passengers enquired about metro stations and availability of Metro’s shuttle bus services.”

Six years in the making, the Doha Metro’s Redline opened on Wednesday, running from Al Qassar to Al Wakrah.


An employee of a construction company said, “My ride in the Metro for official purposes on Sunday was pleasant. With little homework about the timing of bus services, I picked a Metro bus from my residential complex at Wukair to Al Wakrah station. The journey from Al Wakrah to DECC in Metro was quite comfortable and relaxing. For the first time, since I arrived in Doha, I reached the office without the stress of traffic.”

A housewife, who was returning to Al Matar Al Qadeem from West Bay, said, “For the first time, I went to West Bay area without the support of anyone. I had collected maximum information about the service and the mode of transport from Metro’s website and the information shared by friends on social media.”
Another passenger said, “Service staffs in Metro provided all the information related to trains.”
