Public Bus Infrastructure Program
In conjunction with executive bodies in Qatar, the Ministry developed the projects of the Public Bus Infrastructure Program, fully equipped with an infrastructure that facilitates the operation of ecofriendly e-buses as part of achieving the goals of the QNV2030.
The Program aims at providing an integrated, sustainable public transit network that covers all urban areas across the country and forms a coherent transportation unit that includes public buses, Doha Metro, and tram networks.
The Program consists of 8 bus stations (Al Sudan, Msheireb, Al Gharrafa, Lusail, Al Wakra, Education City, Industrial Area, and West Bay Central), and 4 bus depots in Lusail, the New Industrial Area, Al Wakra, and Al Rayyan. All these facilities are supported with over 650 charging stations for e-bus operations.
The Program also includes 4 Park & Ride parking locations in Al Qassar, Al Wakra, Lusail, and Education City, in service of public transit users. The Program also featured the developing of more than 2300 bus stops in and outside of Doha City, designed in accordance with highest world standards and technology.
The Program lays the foundation for a full transformation to an electricity-powered transit system that is clean and eco-friendly, using latest technologies, with a view to providing the best services in a fashion that support sustainable development.
