GEOGRAPHICAL DISTRIBUTION OF PUBLIC TRANSPORT SERVICES IN SAUDI ARABIA DURING THE 20th CENTURY

Auther : Dr. Feryal Bint Mohammed Al-Hajri

 

Public transport services are considered the faithful on mirror that reflects the development of land road networks in Saudi Arabia on one hand, and on the other, the comprehensive overall growth witnessed by the Kingdom in the various services and producing sectors.

A study of the conditions of the Kingdom’s public transport services would yield several findings, at the top of which is the noticeable development experienced by this sector, in terms of variety, versatility and increase in the number of inter-city between Saudi cities and international bus trips.

All components of the sector have undergone some tangible progress, which covered all administrative areas during the period of study 1399 – 1417 (1979 – 1997), where it achieved varying increases in the number of trips, centers and employees.

The drawbacks are the high percentage of non-Saudi workers and limitation of its main activity centers providing comprehensive services to the central region of the study area, although its northern region is the gateway for the international public transport trips to the Middle East and North African Regions in particular.

In spite of the difficulties facing this sector, at the forefront of which is competition by private companies and lack of government subsidies since 1993, the sector however, managed to realize adequate profits and dividends to shareholders, which exceeded in 1417 the percentage, estimated at 7% of the paid-up capital.
