      The Metroexpress is a free pilot ride-sharing feeder service that is available for registered Metro passengers and can only be used in conjunction with a metro journey to connect specific service zones around the Doha Metro stations.

      The metroexpress service uses a fleet of branded Mercedes Vito vans that can seat seven passengers in each vehicle, but due to COVID-19 restrictions, only five passengers can sit in the vehicle at a time. It can also be requested on-demand and customers can book a ride through the metroexpress Doha app.

      The metroexpress, currently, serves six Metro stations on the Red Line - from West Bay Qatar Energy to Qatar University - and its adjoining areas and important landmarks as well.
