The buses run on ultra-low-sulfur fuel making them environmentally friendly as it reduces air pollution and CO2 emissions. Meaning that they fit right in with the sustainability of Vision 2030.
With a goal to provide comfortable, affordable and time-saving transportation, the Riyadh Buses are set to be popular.
