Test runs have started for the Riyadh train on the orange railway west of the city and this one resident was lucky enough to record it.
The King AbdulAziz Public Transport in Riyadh will host a metro line that’s going to revolutionze the transportation system in the city. The project is intended to cater to the city’s multiplying amount of people, which has already reached more than 6 MILLION.
By 2028, the population is estimated to reach 8.3 MILLION people, according to Saudi Gazette.
The metro in action
User, The Top Video, posted a video of a resident’s sighting of the Riyadh train conducting its test runs. Looks about almost ready to go!
The guy, in the video, can be heard saying “Look guys, the metro is finally here!”
