Scooters And Bicycles Will Soon Be Allowed Inside Makkah City And The Holy Sites
The Royal Commission for Makkah City and the Holy Sites has introduced programs to encourage the use of lighter modes of transportation like scooters and bicycles within the city and its holy sites. Represented by the General Transport Center in Makkah and the Holy Sites, the commission is also actively educating the community on safe usage of electric scooters within these areas.
The bikes and scooters will be allowed on pedestrian paths, neighborhoods, parking spaces, and around Mount Al-Rahma in Arafat, and Umm Al-Qura University
The university has also provided 30 scooters at four stations on campus and an additional 70 electric scooters to over 1,100 participants! Looks like Makkah is slowly turning into a smart city that is going to make transportation easy for everyone! Considering the huge inflow of tourists and pilgrims to the holy cites, this new initiative will definitely ease transport for those wanting to explore around the holy sites.
