Starting this term, Qatar University (QU) will reduce its bus transportation service to students as part of its ongoing logistics re-arrangements, an official said today, adding that a number of measures were undertaken to limit the service, to define its terms of use, and the various areas it covers in Doha. The reduced service will cover areas in and outside Doha that have been identified and carefully selected by specialists, and was redesigned to provide 4 trips per day – 7:00am, 10:00am, 2:15pm and 5:15pm.

Buses operating around West Bay and Madinat Khalifa have been reduced from 44 to 14 and in some areas such as Al Aziziya from 3 to 2, in line with student capacity, the official said. Ten buses will operate to and from the student dormitories from 6:30am to 10:30pm, and an emergency bus will be active for 24 hours. Since its inception, QU has provided transportation services to female students who have no appropriate means of transportation that facilitates transition to and from the campus. 1500 female students have benefitted from the service this term.
