The first journey of the much awaited train between Makkah and Madinah took place earlier this week.
The minister of transport and chairman of Saudi Railway Organization and Saudi Railways Company took the full journey on the high-speed Haramain train on Sunday.
It was a 450km long journey
The non-stop journey went from Madinah station to Makkah station to examine the readiness of the project before commercial operation of the service.
That’s not all- some passengers will also be invited to try these pilot service journeys
These journeys will increase gradually until the full commercial operation and the minister has confirmed that work is underway to determine the ticket prices to be appropriate and reflect the size of service provided in this project.
