The move strengthens Qatar’s leading position in the clean energy sector, placing it among the first countries in the world to have an integrated electric bus system. It also demonstrates Qatar’s commitment to global clean energy solutions and supports the hosting of a unique, environmentally friendly, and carbon-neutral world cup. The electric bus network comes in the form of supporting the implementation of the strategic plan for the switch to electric vehicles developed by the Minister in collaboration with relevant bodies.
Complete delivery of Qatar’s electric bus orders sets the stage for the 25% conversion of Qatar World Cup 2022 buses to electricity. By 2022, electric buses will be used in metro link services. They will also be used on public transport routes to operate in Doha City, in addition to transporting them to Lusail City and Al Khor. There will be more than 200 crew members working with managers and more than 3000 pilots in the operation of e-buses.
Mowasalat (Karwa) has already started electrifying public transport routes. Currently, Route 76 is already fully operational. In addition, all other Gold Line and Red Line Doha Metro transportation systems operate electric buses. By 2023 and beyond, electric buses will be used on 44 metro link lanes and 48 public lanes.
In support of that, Karara will make full use of the eight bus terminals equipped with electric chargers in Al-Sudan, Industrial Area, Al-Wakra, Education City, Lusail, Gharrafa, and Msheireb, gradually from this May to August 2022. West Bay Central Bus Station will operate in November 2022.
Karara acquired new bus depots in Q3
Karara also acquired 4 bus depots in Q3 by 2022, with full service and staff accommodation, in addition to providing and installing more than 600 electric bus chargers at bus stations and depots, as well as at municipal stations and elsewhere within the approved routes of electric buses operating in public transport and fans of the Qatar Football World Cup, and will be completed by Q3 of 2022.
In addition, 2600 bus stops will be established at bus lanes and where the buses operate with the first phase of the project expected to be completed in October 2022, according to the public transport plan during and after the FIFA World Cup 2022.
These projects are part of the Minister’s Public Bus Infrastructure Program which the Minister is developing in partnership with the Ashghal Public Works Authority. At the event, Transport Minister HE Jassim Saif Ahmed Al-Sulaiti said the arrival of the final collection of e-buses and the disclosure of bus stations and depots was a major step forward in supporting the strategy of switching to electric vehicles, noting that all facilities were equipped with the necessary infrastructure bus.

This achievement, he added, will support the objectives of the Public Bus Infrastructure Program by providing an integrated and sustainable public transport network that covers all urban areas and creates a coherent transport unit that includes public transport buses, Doha Metro, and Lusail Tram.
These achievements are very important as they will be in line with the events of the FIFA World Cup, he said. The Minister said they fully hope that the public transport network in Qatar is a key factor in the success of the international event and will allow visitors to use a variety of modes of transport, providing them with unique and secure, smooth, and relevant information.
He said the Public Bus Infrastructure Program in Qatar was one of the most environmentally friendly programs in the world, laying the groundwork for a shift to a more efficient and environmentally friendly transportation system instead of conventional fuel.
That massive public transportation system, in addition, is beginning to bear fruit, placing the country at the top of the world in the public transport sector and its services provided to citizens, citizens, and tourists. For his part, Fahad Saad Al Qahtani, CEO of Mowasalat (Karwa), said.
