Urban Transport in Jeddah

Jeddah’s wide roads, abundance of cheap or free parking, and low fuel prices have greatly encouraged the use of motor vehicles as the primary mode of transportation for the vast majority of inhabitants. Meanwhile, Jeddah’s public transit system is limited and accounts for just 1-2% of all trips. With the continued increase in urbanization, motorization, and international traffic into Jeddah, the current transport system will struggle to promote mobility and sustain growth.
