Makkah Public Transport Program

Makkah is a truly unique city with global significance to over one fifth of the world’s population. The Makkah Vision, as articulated by HRH Prince Khaled Al Faisal, aims to transform Makkah to a uniquely modern, beautiful and vibrant city that is deeply rooted in its cultural and religious heritage and that befits its historical and spiritual universal importance.
