Qatar University aims to improve the transportation network inside the campus and reduce the traffic congestions. This work aims to provide the transportation department at Qatar University with a unique network design integrating the rail terminal with the in-campus shuttle system. The new design mainly aims to facilitate the transition of students, faculty members, staffs, and visitors between Qatar University Campus's buildings and Qatar Rail terminal leading to encourage customers to use the Qatar rail service. Consequently, shuttle stations locations are optimized, routes are designed, and sufficient number of buses is specified for each route based on the density in each building inside the campus.
