Makkah buses transport 80 million passengers through 1.5 million journeys during test phase
The Royal Commission for Makkah City and Holy Sites (RCMC) has officially reported the impressive results of the Makkah buses initiative’s trial period. The project has completed a staggering 1.5 million trips, effectively catering to the commuting needs of the region.
Since the commencement of the trial operation, the Makkah bus service has catered to the travel requirements of over 80 million passengers, according to the announcement by RCMC. This achievement showcases the growing popularity and utility of this mode of transportation.
One of the most notable outcomes of the project is its positive impact on mitigating traffic congestion. Operating a fleet of 400 buses at key locations, the service has played a pivotal role in alleviating the city’s traffic woes.
Furthermore, the bus service has been instrumental in enhancing accessibility to crucial destinations, such as major educational and recreational centers, historical landmarks, and the central area of the Grand Mosque. With a comprehensive network of 435 stop stations, including four central stations and 25 upgraded air-conditioned stations, convenience and comfort are at the forefront of this transportation initiative.
