RIYADH: In preparation for heightened travel demand during Ramadan, the Haramain High Speed Railway announces plans to significantly increase its operations, with over 2,700 trips scheduled and seating for more than 1.3 million passengers. The railway, known for its top-speed capabilities of up to 300 kph, will enhance its operational capacity to cover the 449 km distance between Makkah and Madinah in just two hours and 20 minutes. This expansion aims to streamline transportation for pilgrims and visitors while alleviating congestion on routes between Makkah, Madinah, and Jeddah. Established in 2018, the railway boasts advanced signaling systems and five stations, including terminals in Makkah, Madinah, and Jeddah’s King Abdulaziz Airport. With 35 electric trains offering amenities such as business-class compartments and a cafeteria, the railway ensures comfort and efficiency for passengers during the holy month.
