Public Transport in Qatar

Information on bus services and getting around Qatar using the public transport system and taxis...

The public transport system in Qatar, and Doha in particular, is developing, but is not yet as comprehensive as in many longer-established population centres in other parts of the world. With cheap fuel and cars, and expanding road networks, private car remains the most popular method of travel.

There is a steadily improving bus system in Doha, and between Doha and other towns, and a government-run taxi service that is modern but can be oversubscribed at peak times.

There are no train, tram or metro systems in operation in any cities in Qatar. A Metro is planned for Doha, but is not set for completion for several years.

Air transport is an area where the country has a good international reputation derived from the Qatar Airways fleet, and Doha’s position as an international hub.
