The Red Line, also known as the Coast Line, runs for 40 kilometers from Al Wakra in the south to Lusail in the north. The line also connects Hamad International Airport at Terminal 1 to the center of the city. It has 18 stations; notable ones include West Bay, Katara, and Qatar University. The Legtaifiya Station will also allow you to transfer over to the Lusail Light Rail Transit, in addition to another interchange station between the metro and the tram called Lusail Central.
The line offers a very convenient and reliable alternative to
driving within the heart of the capital. A trip from the airport to Lusail, currently taking nearly an hour and a half at peak traffic time, will be a short 36 minute trip with the Doha Metro.
This is Ras Bu Fontas Station for the Red Line.
