New Trains for Education City

Education City recently implemented new train car bus things to take Georgetown and other students around campus.  These sure are cooler than the GUTS buses!

In a first for Qatar, new road trains for students have started to run across Qatar Foundation’s Education City. The gold- and silver-coloured air-conditioned trains, which resemble old steam locomotives, run past the Ceremonial Court and each of the branch campuses from 7am to 7pm on weekdays. Trains run every 10 minutes and are only for university students at present, Qatar Foundation Telegraph reported.  The objective is to minimise traffic around Education City schools in the long run. During the initial phase, the trains will run two routes, the publication reported last year. 

Full steam ahead’ for Education City trains
