We are keen to further strengthen our collaboration with Qatar Rail to enhance our visitors experience”.
Mall of Qatar and Qatar Rail have shared a strong legacy of partnership following the opening of the Metro station Al Riffa. Building the air-conditioned bridge has been much appreciated by the public, who can access the mall comfortably without the trouble of passing at intersections or external roads, to be the only mall in Qatar that is directly connected to the metro station.
The opening of the Doha Metro Green Line in December 2019 was an important step in enhancing the attendance of visitors and shoppers to Mall of Qatar, as it carries passengers from various metro stations in Doha to the Mall.
