State-owned Saudi Railway Co partnered with the US ride-hailing platform Uber to launch a new service to facilitate the transportation from SAR stops to final destinations.
 

This new service allows SAR clients to schedule rides in advance through the Uber app, enabling a faster arrival.

The first phase will cover stations in Riyadh on the North Train line and Qassim, and for the Eastern Train, Riyadh, Hofuf, and Dammam.

The stations Al Majmaah, Hail, Al Jawf, Qurayyat and Abqaiq will be covered in the second phase.

SAR's new partnership with Uber is expected to boost the level of transportation for SAR passengers, which comes in line with the railway company’s development plans.

The agreement will also see further steps to enhance passengers’ travel experience, Senior Vice President for Passenger Transport at SAR, Khaled Al-Harbi said.
