Key travel information for Qatar 2022 match ticket holders
With the big kick-off only days away, FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ organisers have released key travel information for fans attending matches.
Qatar residents should drive to matches
People who live in Qatar and have access to a car should drive to matches. There is ample free parking within walking distance of all eight stadiums. Local residents are encouraged to drive in order to free up capacity on the Doha Metro and other public transport services for visitors.
The Doha Metro will be much busier than normal
The Doha Metro will be extremely busy for extended periods on match days. Long queues are expected outside metro stations across the country. Fans travelling by metro should allow plenty of time to complete their journey. Fans should also note that all metro stations will close daily at 3 AM throughout the tournament.
Consider using dedicated bus services to reach stadiums
A range of Stadium Express bus services will be available from central Doha bus hubs and key accommodation sites. These are expected to provide the quickest route to and from matches.
Travel light where possible on public transport
As metro and bus services are expected to be busy transporting fans, people with luggage are advised to use taxis or rideshare options. At busy times, you may not be permitted to access the metro with luggage.
