Delivering training on behalf of UITP in Riyadh, June 2022

July 11, 2022

It was great to visit Riyadh and deliver integrated land use and planning training on behalf of UITP to the Transport General Authority (TGA) last month. It was my second visit to Riyadh so enjoyed being able to see of the city this time than my previous 24 hour visit in April. I had the opportunity to check out the Boulevard City, a new entertainment complex of shops, restaurants and live music as well as the coach station and new Riyadh Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) service. I fully admit the latter is not necessarily on the tourist map but I do enjoy checking out public transport on my travels!
