Qatar Foundation has launched the Blue Line of the Education City Tram, connecting the Education City Stadium, Qatar Academy Doha and Virginia Commonwealth University in Qatar.

All trams are fully air-conditioned and free WiFi is available on board. Bikes and pets are also allowed and eating inside the tram is permitted.

All tram services are free of charge. No special tickets or passes are required. It will operate from 6:30 am to 5 pm on weekdays. For special events, the timing could be extended.

Led by QF’s Capital Projects Directorate, the Education City Tram has been specifically designed and customised for its surroundings. The 19 state-of-the-art Avenio trams have an onboard energy-storing system that removes the need for overhead power cables, and can travel from one stop to the next without a need for charging. Each air-conditioned tram has 64 seats, including dedicated seats for people with disabilities.

Stations at QF’s three multi-storey car parks will allow the community to park their cars on arrival and use the Tram to get to their final destination. There are interchange tram stops / stations that connects to the Doha Metro, and this vital link will play a key role at the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™, carrying thousands of football fans to matches at the Education City Stadium.
