Users can use the Travel Card on board the tram itself. Users of the Lusail Tram must Tap In & Tap Out using the validators on the tram to avoid any extra charges.
If you’re on the Doha Metro, you can transfer to the Lusail Tram at Legtaifiya metro station.
You can also use the metroexpress service to and from the Lusail Tram stops. This free ride-sharing service connects the nearby areas to the tram stations.
The Ministry of Transport (MOT) is yet to announce when the tram service will become fully operational. Stay tuned on ILoveQatar.net (ILQ) for the information.
As per Doha Metro and Lusail Tram, the design of the Lusail Tram vehicles was inspired by Al Mehmel (traditional Qatari sailing) with its front shaped like the bow of a vessel. The interior design of the new Lusail Tram stations was developed on 3 levels with the colours relflecting the traditional handcrafted textiles and the stained glass used in local windows.
According to the Doha Metro and Lusail Tram, patterns are derived from gypsum engravings used in local houses, majlis and palaces. Textures of clay used in historical fortresses, towers, souqs are reflected on walls and floors and vintage geometrical ornaments are accentuated and used in multiple locations.
