Existing Doha Metro Travel Cards will allow customers to seamlessly move throughout the Metro and Tram networks as well as provide access to metroexpress and metrolink services.

Travel Cards work across both the Tram and the Metro with no additional costs, however, customers must always remember to Tap In & Tap Out using the validator onboard the Tram to avoid paying twice. The tram preview service will operate from 6.00 to 23.00hrs Saturday to Wednesday,  and from 6.00 to 23.59 on Thursdays and 14.00 to 23.59 on Fridays.
