Before Qatar launched Mowsalat bus and taxis in 2002, how did people get around?
Aside from family vehicles, from 1965 onwards, a network of 3000 privately owned, orange busses ruled Qatar’s roads (pictured).
These busses were full of character and were often spotted with creative methods on beating traffic and getting you ahead.
For Qatar though, safety has always been top priority.
The orange busses were removed almost overnight, to give way for Mowsalat’s busses and Karwa taxis. Yes, the blue ones!
