The Ministry of Transport and Communications (MOTC) is planning to start a trial for the Automatic Rapid Transit (ART) – an innovative, modern and environment-friendly public transport system. With intelligent controls, ART is a rail-less system for urban transport which is essentially a crossover between buses and trams. It also integrates electrical and mechanical systems.
The trial in Qatar for the ART system will be the first in the world after it has been in operation in the manufacturing country China. The trial will start on Al Khor Expressway next week, continue for a specific period of time and will be assessed by MOTC to make sure the ART fits Qatar’s weather conditions before going ahead with deploying it.
The new system, if successful, will support the diversification of transportation sector in Qatar through using the world’s latest transportation system with advanced technology. This contributes to achieving economic and environmental balance in the transportation sector’s infrastructure projects. It would also offer an exceptional experience for fans and visitors during the FIFA World Cup 2022 with high-quality services that provide smooth mobility to stadiums, residences and tourist spots.
This initiative comes within MOTC’s endeavors to providing a world-class, multimodal integrated transportation system that connects all areas and regions in Qatar, helping the public to reach to all vital areas easily with safe and reliable services in line with the pillars of the Qatar National Vision 2030, in addition to its significant contribution to developing transportation modes in Qatar according to latest eco-friendly universal systems and deploying alternative and clean energy in the industry to reduce harmful emissions.
