SAR achieves successful Ramadan season with Haramain High-Speed Railway

Makkah, April 10, 2024, The Saudi Arabia Railways (SAR) recently announced the successful execution of its operational plan for the 1445 AH Ramadan season, showcasing a significant achievement in passenger transportation via the Haramain High-Speed Railway connecting Makkah and Madinah.

During this period, SAR facilitated the transportation of over 1 million passengers, marking a notable 22% increase compared to the preceding Ramadan season. This accomplishment was made possible through 2,845 trips, demonstrating a commendable 12% rise from the previous year.

The primary focus of SAR's efforts during Ramadan was to ensure the seamless transportation of visitors to the Two Holy Mosques, providing them with convenience and ease as they performed their religious rituals. One of the key elements of SAR's operational plan was the expansion of the Haramain High-Speed Railway's capacity, allowing for more trips and available seats.

This strategic approach reflects SAR's commitment to enhancing the overall travel experience for visitors, offering a broader range of transportation options at optimal timings. The implementation of the operational plan followed a meticulous process, involving coordination with the Saudi-Spanish consortium managing the high-speed train and relevant government entities.

Under the direct supervision of Eng. Saleh Al-Jasser, Minister of Transport and Logistic Services and SAR Chairman of the Board of Directors, the operational plan included a comprehensive action plan focused on ensuring the safety and comfort of travelers throughout their journey between Makkah and Madinah. This included careful scheduling of trips to align with prayer times at the Two Holy Mosques, further underscoring SAR's commitment to providing the highest standards of safety and comfort to visitors.
