Riyadh public transport system to start operations in Q2 2021

Saudi Arabia Public Transport Co. (SAPTCO) will launch operations of Riyadh public transport network in the second quarter of 2021, the company said in a statement to Tadawul on Sunday.

SAPTCO said it received a letter on Dec. 19 from its 80 percent-owned subsidiary, General Transportation Co., stating that the Royal Commission in Riyadh has set Q2 2021 for the commencement of actual operation of the King Abdulaziz public transportation project network.

The project costs cannot be currently estimated, as coordination is ongoing with the related parties on the required work plan, SAPTCO added.

On June 30, 2020, SAPTCO said the Riyadh public transport network will begin operations in Q4 2020, Argaam reported.

SAPTCO signed, in late 2014, a contract with France-based RATP Dev Company to establish the Public Transportation Co. with a capital of SAR 10 million to operate its Riyadh Buses project.
