Abstract—This paper discusses the past and future of the transportation system in the city of Doha, Qatar. The city of Doha, the capitol of Qatar, is one of oldest cities in the gulf area and has witnessed a rapid change in its demographics over the past decades. Qatar has grown dramatically through the last 40 years from fishing and pearling based economy to a diverse economy. After the discovery of oil around three decades ago, the country witnessed a growth spurt in its economy. Doha has changed physically, economically, culturally, and demographically. The remarkable increase in Qatar’s population from 750,000 in 2004 to 1,700,000 in 2010 had resulted in major changes to Doha’s land use. The city has grown from a single core and expanded outwardly along main routes leaving Doha’s downtown heavily congested. It was highly necessary to redevelop the transportation system in the city to accommodate the urban expansion in the heart of the city. Qatar plans to spend an estimated 100 billion USD over the next five years on infrastructure projects to expand and enhance the quality of road, water, air, and rail networks. Many projects were commissioned to improve the conditions of the transportation system and these projects were envisioned to have a holistic approach with the aim of integrating heritage, economic, sustainability, environment, and social enrichment of the country.
