It is most likely that the newly opened Doha Metro Red Line South, which began operations on 8 May, will be having new timings after Ramadan is over, based on information from Qatar Rail's customer service hotline (105), reports Gulf Times.
Operations on the Red Line South which, currently, covers 13 of the 18 stations on its route, and these include: Al Wakrah, Ras Bu Fontas, Free Zone, Oqba Ibn Nafie, Matar Al Qadeem, Umm Ghuwailina, Al Doha Al Jadeeda, Msheireb (Interchange station), Al Bidda (Interchange station), Corniche, QIC West Bay, DECC and Al Qassar, will probably begin before 8 am when Ramadan ends to facilitate the many people in Qatar who start work at 7 am.
After Ramadan, the revised Doha metro timetable will be announced on Doha Metro and Qatar Rail social media platforms that include Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. People wishing to use the service to and from work, should keep a lookout so they are informed of the new timetable.
At present, the Doha Metro is operational from Sunday to Thursday (8 am - 11 pm) and is closed during the weekends to facilitate that work that is taking place to ensure the other stations on the Red Line South which include Katara, Legtaifiya, Qatar University and Lusail, as well as the other Doha Metro lines can be made operational soon.
The entire Doha Metro network will be complete and operational by 2020, and will be beneficial to those who wish to avoid the heavy traffic on the roads during rush hours because it is faster, convenient and cost-effective.
