Saudi authorities are set to open next month a trailer bus service aimed at tackling the increasing traffic problem in Makkah during the Haj and Umrah seasons, Arab News has reported. The 'To and From Haram' bus service comes under the Social Partnership Charter Project launched by the Makkah governorate, Makkah Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MCCI), and the Makkah District Centres Society, with the support of the Saudi Afkar Co. The SR1m trailer bus can carry 200 people.
