The Ministry of Transport and Communications (MoTC) is planning a trial run next week of the Automatic Rapid Transit (ART), an innovative, modern and environment-friendly public transport system.
With intelligent controls, ART is a rail-less system for urban transport which is essentially a crossover between buses and trams. It also integrates electrical and mechanical systems.
The trial in Qatar for the ART system will be the first in the world since it has been in operation in the manufacturing country, China.
The trial, which will start on Al Khor Expressway next week, will continue for a specific period of time and will be assessed by the MoTC to make sure the ART fits Qatar’s weather conditions before going ahead with its deployment.
The new system, if successful, will support the diversification of Qatar’s transportation sector. This will contribute to achieving economic and environmental balance in the transportation sector’s infrastructure projects.
This will also offer an exceptional experience for fans and visitors during the 2022 FIFA World Cup with high-quality services providing smooth mobility to stadiums, residences and tourist spots.
This initiative comes as part of the MoTC’s endeavors to provide a world-class, multimodal integrated transportation system that connects all areas and regions in Qatar, helping the public to reach in all vital areas easily with safe and reliable services in line with the pillars of the Qatar National Vision 2030.
This will be a significant contribution to developing transportation modes in Qatar according to the latest eco-friendly universal systems and deploying alternative and clean energy to reduce harmful emissions.
