2021 Arab Cup Info

Using data that was used for the 2021 Arab Cup, we found that there were two bus services providing roundtrip transport to stadiums from Doha (in addition to the rail system). We know how close the stadiums are but you can now see specifics for a public transportation option.

Khalifa Street Bus Hub

Hub to Stadium Distances:

  • Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium – 45 minutes
  • Al Bayt Stadium – 55 minutes
  • Al Janoub Stadium – 45 minutes
  • Al Thumana Stadium – 30 minutes
  • Education City Stadium – 30 minutes
  • Stadium 974 – 45 minutes

We assume these time estimates are likely based on average traffic conditions – and there’s nothing average about World Cup traffic conditions.

Souq Waqif Bus Hub

Located in the Souq Waqif marketplace, this may be the more popular option for all the tourists?

Hub to Stadium Distances:

  • Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium – 45 minutes
  • Al Bayt Stadium – 45 minutes
  • Al Janoub Stadium – 35 minutes
  • Al Thumana Stadium – 25 minutes
  • Education City Stadium – 30 minutes
  • Stadium 974 – 30 minutes
