      Hi Jacob, As per the official Qatar Rail website, only Orange line is shown as “Good Service” while the Pink line is shown as “Coming Soon”. May be this is a test run and it would be open soon.

  2. October 2023, are all tram stops currently underground? Is it possible to film the tram on the ground level?
    Best Regards

    1. Hi Johnny, Lusail tram includes four lines and 25 stations aboveground and underground. Most of them are aboveground. For filming permission, please call their helpline on +974 4429 3777.

  3. We were at the world cup. It was fabulous. The Lusail Boulevard tram was not operational. We will be back to Doha in February. Will the tram be working then?

    1. Doha Guides Team

      Hi Fred, Currently the Orange line serves 7 stations only. More stations will be opened soon. Not sure if they would be ready by February.
