Qatar’s Education City trams undergo testing ahead of summer delivery
The first trains designed to run on a new 11.5km tram network across Qatar Foundation‘s Education City campus have been built and are being tested in Austria ahead of an expected delivery this summer.
The US$412 million project is intended to facilitate a car-free campus and provide public transportation to key locations through 24 stations.
Students and staff will eventually be required to leave their vehicles in multistory car parks around the perimeter of the property and ride the tram to their classrooms and offices.
When completed, the new people-mover system is expected to be one of the region’s most energy efficient transport systems.
