The decision to extend the services of Doha Metro Red Line South to Friday and Saturday will help it to set a new ridership record. For commuters, it was a long pending wish which has now been fulfilled as it will give them much-awaited chance to enjoy Doha Metro journey with their family on weekends.
On Tuesday, The Ministry of Transport and Communications (MOTC), had announced that the Doha Metro Red Line South would now be open for the public during weekends from tomorrow.
“It is a welcome move which will benefit all sections of the society. It will further reduce congestion on roads. The total number of commuters for Doha Metro Red Line South will increase significantly after this announcement,” a senior official of a transport consultancy firm told The Peninsula. “Many people do not want to drive a car for family outings on their weekly-off days and such people will like to use Doha Metro train on Friday and Saturday,” he added.
