Bus

Use the public bus service to travel across Doha

Doha’s bus network connects Hamad International Airport to various destinations across the city, offering a convenient transport option. All buses are operated by Mowasalat, Qatar’s state transport company. The vehicles are clean, well-maintained and staffed by trained drivers and supported by helpful ground staff.

Your bus fare can only be paid with a Karwa Smartcard. You can purchase or top-up a Karwa Smartcard from the Mowasalat Information Desk near Baggage Claim Belt 5 & 6. There are three options to choose from:

  • QR10 Card (USD 3): two inner-city trips within a 24 hour period
