Riyadh Bus: Your Guide to Getting Around the City

The Basics

The Riyadh bus system is operated by the Riyadh Public Transport Company (RPTC). There are over 200 bus routes that serve all parts of the city. Buses run from 5:00 AM to 12:00 AM, seven days a week.


Bus fares are very affordable. A single ride costs SR 2.00, and a day pass costs SR 10.00. You can purchase tickets from bus drivers or from ticket vending machines at bus stops.

How to Ride the Bus

To ride the bus, simply flag down a bus at a bus stop. Once the bus arrives, board and tell the driver where you want to go. You can pay your fare in cash or with a Nol card. When you are ready to get off, pull the stop cord or ring the bell.

Tips for Riding the Bus

  • Be familiar with the bus routes before you go. You can find maps and schedules on the RPTC website.
  • Have the exact fare ready when you board the bus.
  • Be prepared for crowds, especially during peak hours.
  • Be patient. The bus system can be slow at times.
  • Be respectful of other passengers.

Using the Riyadh Bus App

The RPTC also has a mobile app that you can use to plan your trip, track buses in real time, and purchase tickets. The app is available in English and Arabic.

The Riyadh bus system is a great way to get around the city. It is affordable, easy to use, and it can help you avoid traffic congestion. So next time you are in Riyadh, give the bus a try!
