Amlak and Doha Bus have introduced a new route that goes through Education City beginning this month.

The new route will enable more tourists to explore Education City grounds, the Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art, Qatar National Library, Qatar National Convention Centre (QNCC) and Al Shaqab to name just a few.

The bus will stop at QNCC every hour and at Education City every 1.30 minutes — from 9am until 2.30pm with the last trip at 5pm.

Doha Bus is designed to provide a flexible way for tourists and residents to discover Doha.

The tour will weave through Education City’s hop-on, hop-off points every two hours, offering an opportunity to experience landmarks like the Arab Museum of Modern Art and the Qatar Foundation Student Centre along the way.

Visitors will also be able to enjoy a relaxing break from their touring activities at Doha’s first farm-to-table restaurant, Chef’s Garden, at the exclusive Marwan Club on Al Shaqab grounds.

Chef’s Garden has partnered with local farms to bring locally grown and organic products to the consumer whenever possible.

“Our collaboration with Doha Bus opens new doors for Doha tourists and residents to experience Education City as not only a local destination but also an international hub that houses world- renowned institutions, international research and cultural centres,” said Abdul Aziz Al Emadi, CEO, Amlak.

“By promoting this important Doha destination, we are advocating the vital role the institution as a whole plays in the development and preservation of Qatar’s knowledge-based economy.”

On the new route, Khalid Al Suwaidi, CEO, Doha Bus, said: “We have been in operation since 2012, and our aim is to showcase the best of what Qatar has to offer.

“Education City to us is more than a landmark, it is an international destination.

“Partnering with Amlak to make this destination more accessible to the masses will offer a new perspective of our city to visitors and residents of Qatar,” Al Suwaidi added.
