Planning on heading for a holiday or business trip in Doha? Here is everything you need to know about the transport available in the dynamic capital of Qatar!
The city lays claim to an extensive bus system operated by a state-owned company called Mowasalat which run through most major towns with a route that ends by the Saudi border. The main terminal is located in the downtown area and would prove to be a good way to experience the pace and vibe of the metropolitan.
Many reputed local and international car firms operate in Qatar. Most of the five-star hotels in Doha including the likes of Banana Island Resort Doha by Anantara would recommend reputable rental agencies upon enquiries by guests.
The most popular way to get around when your visiting on a holiday would be to hail yourself a taxi. Fares start at 10 Riyals, and most of the vehicles happen to be sedans or the likes and make for comfortable rides.
Launched by Qatar’s Ministry of Transport for the West Bay district, the shuttle serves as a good transport choice for residents and tourists alike. Some iconic landmarks it covers on its route include Dafna Towers and The Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre.
