RIYADH — The Royal Commission for Riyadh City (RCRC) has announced the start of the third stage of the Riyadh Buses service.
The Riyadh service is part of King Abdulaziz Public Transport Project in Riyadh, which is one of the main pillars for the economic and urban transformation in the Saudi capital.
The transformation will be through developing the public transportation means in the city, and to create a qualitative shift that enhance the public transportation sector, in line with the goals of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030.
During the first 6 months from the start of the Riyadh Buses service which was launched in March of 2023, about 435 trips were operated transporting more than 4 million passengers.
With the launch of the 3rd stage, the total paths of the Riyadh Buses have reached 33 paths, served by 565 buses that cover more than 1,611 stations and different stopping points. It covers 1,284 km out of a total network of 1,900 km.
The project is continuing to launch the remaining stages, with the aim of fully operating the Riyadh Buses network before the end of 2023.
