The Riyadh Metro is a rapid transit system serving the city of Riyadh. It consists of 6 metro lines spanning a total length of 176 kilometres with 85 stations. The project will cost $22.5 billion to build. It is scheduled to open in 2019.
The electric train will contain 85 stations, including a number of major stations where train tracks meet, and is designed to consist of several levels according to modern architectural designs. These stations will stop at shopping centres and parking spaces.
The project has been approved and awarded four major stations contracts. These are located at the intersection, on subway tracks and buses. The designs of the metro fulfilled the security requirements and safety of passengers.
The metro project aims to reduce the number of car trips by nearly 250 thousand trips a day, which equals to 400 thousand litres of fuel per day and to reduce the air pollution being emitted in the city. Once completed, the metro aims to cater to 3.6 million passengers a day.
