Qatar has decided to donate the buses used for World Cup to Lebanon to help fight the struggling times.

The total count of donations rounds up to 1000 existing buses with 3000 more that were purchased in the later stage to aid free transport for World Cup fans. The media resources reported that Qatar was also supposedly going to donate infrastructure along with buses. But the Lebanese resources pressed on the fact that the donations are only inclusive of a certain amount of buses.

Sources confirmed that the plan has been explored to establish a private Qatari company. This would give rise to a partnership across both countries in order to run the vehicles, control their administration, and build service centres.
