The Ministry of Transport and Communications (MOTC) has announced that the trial operation of the Doha Metro’s Gold Line will start for the public on 21 November. The line extends from Ras Bu Abboud Station to Al Aziziyah Station.
The Gold Line, which runs east to west across Doha, includes 11 stations: Ras Bu Abboud, National Museum, Souq Waqif, Musheireb, Bin Mahmoud, Al Sadd, Sudan, Jawaan, Al Waab, Sports City, Aziziyah.
Operation timings for the Gold Line will be the same as those for the Red Line – Saturday through Thursday from 6 am-11 pm. Friday will be from 2 pm-11 pm. Doha Metro users can switch between the Red Line and the Gold Line at Musheireb Station.
To cover a wider range and serve more neighbourhoods and areas adjacent to the stations, new routes will be allocated to the Metro Link service, which is a shuttle bus service to transport passengers from neighbouring areas to and from the metro stations.
Doha Metro currently operates Red Line South from Al Qassar to Al Wakra.
The initial operation includes 13 out of 18 Red Line stations: Al Qassar, DECC, QIC West Bay, Corniche, Al Bidda (Interchange Station), Msheireb (Interchange Station), Al Doha Al Jadeda, Umm Ghawalina, Al Matar Al Qadeem, Oqba Ibn Nafie, Free Zone, Ras Bu Fontas and Al Wakra.
The Doha Metro system will be built in two phases: the first will see the construction of three out of the four lines – Red, Gold and Green – and 37 station. The Red Line, which was originally planned for 2020, opened almost one year ahead of schedule in May 2019. The Green Line is expected to open to the public in January 2020.
