The Saudi Railway Co. (SAR) on Wednesday announced the launch of its first-ever night train journey from Riyadh to Al-Jouf.



The station’s addition marks the fifth destination included on SAR’s passenger line, the firm told local media. Its inclusion comes following the completion of the operation.

Passengers will now be able to enjoy special night cabins on the trains travelling between Riyadh and Al-Jouf through Hail and Al-Qassim.

Each cabin boasts pillows, blankets and Wi-Fi, and can fit a maximum of four people. A team will also be available to serve passengers throughout the trip.

Travellers wishing to travel on the train can book tickets through SAR’s website, application or its customer service centre.

Saudi Arabia opened its new high-speed railway to the public last month, taking Muslim pilgrims and other passengers between Makkah and Madinah.

The Haramain High Speed Rail system transports travellers 450 kilometres (280 miles) via the Red Sea port of Jeddah at speeds of up to 300 kilometres per hour.



It consists of two trains carrying 417 passengers each. They will initially run only two daily services.
