Today's QL Flashback Friday takes a look back at an Exploring Qatar episode where Gigi and Jorge had the exclusive opportunity to showcase some behind-the-scenes from Qatar Rail's first phase of development. 

Doha Metro, which was officially launched in May last year, currently operates three lines the Gold Line, the Green Line, and the Red Line.

The ambitious project by Qatar Rail, which is being developed to serve more areas across Qatar, has revolutionized the country's public transport.

It offers the people of Qatar a safe, quick, reliable and hassle-free means of internal transport. 

Doha Metro is part of Qatar's wider ambition to establish an integrated world-class, multi-modal transport system.

Currently, there are 37 operational metro stations and Metro users can interchange between Red Line, Gold Line, and Green Line at Musheireb station.

Effective from February 21, 2020, paper tickets for the Metro will cost QAR 3 per single journey and QAR 9 for a day pass (Standard). For those traveling the Goldclub class, the charges will be QAR 15 and QAR 45, respectively.

The fee for acquiring a Standard Travelcard is QAR 10 while the Goldclub card costs QAR 30 for a day pass. Children aged below five can travel for free.

Travel Cards are available at all Doha Metro stations and licensed retailers.
