Qatar Rail extends registration for retail spaces in metro stations


Qatar Rail has announced an extended registration period to run until end of September for businesses entrepreneurs, and local companies seeking commercial spaces in Doha Metro network.

The final phase of the Doha Metro Retail features commercial retail shops at the Gold Line 10 stations running from Ras Bu Abboud to Al Aziziyah, the Green Line featuring Al Riffa station, and the Red line with 5 stations running from Katara to Lusail and Hamad International Airport station.

The retail units have competitive licensing rates which are fixed for a period of five years. Unit licensing rates during this period will not be affected by fluctuation in the rental market. Additionally, these rates are also inclusive of utilities, water and electricity. Also the retail units include ready flooring and shop shutter. The commercial outlets are dispersed outside of the paid area in the stations reaching a wider customer segment.

All applications go through a comprehensive review based on experience, proposed business plan, proposed store concept and the nature of the activity whilst Qatar Rail aims to achieve diversity and integration between the various retail outlets to better service customers and metro commuters. With over 9,200 sq m of retail space across 37 stations, these outlets are considered the first of its kind in Qatar since it provides business access to railway commuters and neighborhood customers.

The stations provide constant significant footfall and thus are premium locations for retail outlets. Stations will offer four main types of retail including services, food and beverage, convenience stores and general retail. The online registration is open until September 26. Application for the retail spaces can be submitted in a few easy steps via Qatar Rail’s online retail portal at
