However, currently an underground Train System, the Doha Subway / Metro system is under construction for the first time bringing train transport to the city and even the Gulf Region. The first Subway / Metro Line to be opened in Doha City and Qatar will be the Red Line.

Doha has two International Airports, a Yachting Harbor, an Industrial Harbor Facility but NO Railroad Station. A Subway / Metro underground system is currently being develloped.
The primary means of travel to the city of Doha is either by air or sea.

In addition to the existing Doha International Airport (DIA), an additional International Airport will be opened in 2013 in the West Bay Area. This airport is now designated as Doha Hamad International Airport (HIA). Upon the reaching of full operation levels at HIA, DIA will cease to exist as an airport for International Jet Passenger Flights. Instead, Doha International Airport will be the hub for Helicopter Flights in the Gulf Area and will further be home to the Qatar General Aviation College and serve a number of Military Functions. The new DIA Doha Hamad International Airport will be the designated airfield for International Passenger Flights.
