As an integral part of the Qatar Rail Development Program (QRDP), the Doha Metro network, consisting of 4 lines, will cover the Greater Doha area and will include connections to town centers and vital commercial and residential areas throughout the city. In central Doha, the Metro will be underground, whilst at the outskirts; it will mainly be at ground level or above the ground. The first phase of the project, involving three lines, is due to operate in 2019/20.
