The latest popular mode of transportation in Lusail City is the trendy rickshaws (three-wheelers), carrying people between Place Vendome, Lusail Marina Food Arena, and Katara Towers.
The rickshaws operate from 7pm to 3am daily, and the demand for rickshaw rides continues to rise, especially during the weekend, when families and children like to roam around the area.
The environment-friendly e-rickshaws, provide an opportunity for visitors to explore the three popular sites conveniently. It can also be operated manually by pedalling, run at speeds between 15kmph and 23kmph. A 15–20-minute ride costs QR60, it was learnt. Each rickshaw can seat up to four people, including the driver.
At least two rickshaws stay at Place Vendome station, another two at the Food Arena, and one at the I Love Lusail 'station' - they can also be used for any emergencies. The rides will prove to be enjoyable to the passengers as they can relax, listen to Qatari music, and take pictures of the beautiful scenery surrounding them.
Some visitors hope that the number of environment-friendly vehicles like rickshaws will increase in Qatar particularly, in the run-up to the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, providing a convenient service to more people who want to visit places and boosting the country's tourism, food & beverage, and retail sectors.
The demand for such modes of transportation is expected to further increase during the colder months, attracting local and international visitors.
This new mode of transportation is expected to draw more crowds in the coming days, with Lusail emerging as a tourism hotspot in Qatar with various attractions, giving people more reason to visit the place.
