Lusail Tram

There are four lines and 25 stations in the Lusail Tram network, which provides convenient transportation within the new city of Lusail. There are two interchange stations on the Lusail Tram that connect to the Doha Metro at Lusail and Legtaifiya.

Trams are more environmentally friendly and better able to handle traffic than buses. They are also much more efficient in terms of road usage, as one train replaces about 40 cars, which occupy a much larger amount of road space.

In the near future, the Lusail tram will serve as a major transportation hub for Lusail City, Qatar’s largest sustainable development project to date.


Msheireb Tram
