Saudi Arabia Transport: Buses Last updated on Sunday 25th April 2010

SAPTCO (Saudi Arabian Public Transport Company) operates bus services with most towns and between the larger cities.

The buses are comfortable and the fares are reasonable, generally lower than in the US or Europe. Each bus has a special section for women and children.

SAPTCO, which was established in 1979 with a 1 billion SR capital, gradually expanded its activities beginning with local city lines followed by inter-city service. It then has extended its services to some neighbouring countries. Throughout its activities, SAPTCO offered excellent services, using modern, comfortable and airconditioned buses. Moreover, the Ministry of Transport Affairs supervises taxi and limousine services in the cities and at the airports.
