The Royal Commission for AlUla (RCU) has signed an agreement with Systra to design the AlUla Tram in a move to enhance AlUla’s comprehensive development. The historical heritage sites will be among the stations and routes that the tram will connect.
The AlUla Tram is a crucial initiative in the development program and a cornerstone of The ‘Journey through Time’ masterplan, which intends to make AlUla a popular tourist destination worldwide by 2030 by offering heritage, nature, art, and culture.

Through the tram project, the RCU aims to enhance the sustainability of mobility, and reduce crowd and noise. The 50-kilometer tram, which will serve several routes, runs from AlUla International Airport in the south to Hegra city in the north.
The design of the project’s first phase is expected to be concluded in 2023.
