Travelling by Bus, Qatar
Contrary to what you might have heard, Qatar does indeed have a public transport system. The new bus service started in October 2005 and is operated by a government-owned company called Mowalsalat, which also owns all the new bluish-silver taxis operating around town. The bus fare is QR 2 for rides in Doha, and up to QR 7 for inter-city buses. The Central Bus Terminus is located near the Alfardan Centre on Grand Hamad Street. Marhaba magazine produces a map which indicates the bus routes; the Mowasalat website is suprisingly unhelpful in this regard.
