The procedures for verifying the requirements for the luggage allowed to be carried then begin, and the traveler then moves directly to his designated seat inside the train, which consists of 13 cars, one of which is designated to provide food and beverage services.

A number of pilgrim travelers praised the quality of the transportation service between the Two Holy Mosques via the high-speed train, pointing out the easy and safe trips that transport them according to regular schedules around the clock.

She pointed out that the multiplicity of means of transportation between the Two Holy Mosques provides Umrah pilgrims and pilgrims with many options and easy transportation to pray in the Grand Mosque and the Prophet’s Mosque, and to perform Umrah rituals at all available times. She expressed her thanks for the optimal services provided by the Kingdom to pilgrims and Umrah performers, which reflects its concern for their comfort and care.
