Ramadan: Haramain Train operates 84 daily trips between Jeddah, Makkah





The Operations Manager of the Haramain High-Speed Train Project, Eng. Rayan Al-Harbi, said a total of 84 trips will be operated daily between Makkah and Jeddah.

Speaking to newsmen, he said the ticket price in economy class will be SR23 per trip.

Al-Harbi said the goal of this attractive price is to facilitate the residents of Jeddah to perform the Umrah pilgrimage by making the Sulaymaniyah station as the first choice for the services provided by the Haramain Train. There will be bus services to transport pilgrims from the Makkah’s Rusaifa station to the Grand Mosque.

Trips between Makkah and Madinah and the rest of the stations will be increased during the peak Umrah season in Ramadan, after all stations have been equipped with the facilities to serve the Umrah pilgrims.
