Local bus

Buses and Fare saver card There is a huge bus network that runs throughout the capital city Doha. Mowasalat Karwa replaced traditional fairs with a prepaid card called the Fare saver card. The card costs 30 QR ($8.24), with 20 QR becoming credit while the extra 10 QR becomes available once 300QR has been added to the card. Fares within Doha cost between 3 - 4 QR (0.75 - 1€) and journeys to different cities vary between 4 - 9QR (1 - 2.25€) which makes it a very cheap way to travel.

Taxi and Taxi Limousine

Mowasalat oversee the running of a fleet of taxis and taxi limousines which keeps the service running constant and fairly. The cars consist of modern air-conditioned vehicles which is an essential in the Qatar climate. The taxis are metered and all have an initial charge of 4QR ($1.10) with 1.20QR (0.33c) per kilometre during the day and 1.80QR ($0.49c) per kilometre at night or on long distance journeys. However, there is a reputation that currently there are not enough taxis on the roads meaning at busy times it can be difficult to secure a taxi, with long waits for booked taxis and difficulty in hailing them from the street. The easiest method is to queue at a taxi rank in a popular area for example malls and hotels. The base rates for a limousine are 20QR ($5.49) initial fee and then 2QR ($0.55) per kilometer
