Makkah metro ticket will cost SR4

Makkah metro ticket will cost SR4 :A ticket to make one trip on the Makkah metro would cost SR4, a government official said.Saad Al-Qadi, CEO of the Makkah Trains Company and the director general of the project, said the metro would start operating in the third quarter of 2019. However, it would operate on a trial basis six months before the official start.

Al-Qadi said that 15 consortia had submitted bids since last November to build the metro at an estimated cost of SR25.5 billion.

“The assigned committee will announce the winning bids during the first quarter of this year,” said Al-Qadi.
Al-Qadi said he had produced a paper recently on public transport in the city outlining various details of the project.
The company’s executives have not revealed the location of the metro stations because they fear property owners would raise land prices close to these stations.

“I receive tens of phone calls from real estate dealers every day wanting to know the locations of the stations so that they can buy the properties near to them. It is a well-known fact worldwide that prices of property close to railway stations increase by 30 percent in value,” he said.

He said the project has benefited from the experiences of in-depth studies carried out by the Al-Balad Al-Ameen Company and the Riyadh Development Authority.

He said the project had already completed all preliminary studies including working out the line lengths, stations and directions of the trains.

He said tenders would be issued in March for two of the four lines.
