Our expertise

RATP Dev Saudi is launched upon extensive and long-standing experience in the field of transportation services. We operate and maintain Riyadh Metro with two fully-automated lines at a total length of 64 km and 40 metro stations — along with an end-to-end bus network of 100 routes and 70 feeder routes in-and-around the capital.

Backed by a professional team, including world-renowned experts in transportation planning and mass transit systems, RATP Dev will help new horizons to emerge in the kingdom.

The RATP Dev group objectives are perfectly aligned with the kingdom’s ambitious 2030 Vision— embraced by Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman.

Our achievements in the Middle East for the last decade qualify our presence in Saudi Arabia—as we begin operating locally with more than 100 experts from different urban transportation fields. Whether employed or seconded, our determined teams work around the clock in planning, designing, and operating Saudi Arabia’s two major emblematic projects underway; Riyadh Metro, through our subsidiary Capital Metro Company (CAMCO), and Riyadh Bus Network through our operating subsidiary Public Transportation Company (PTC).

RATP Dev Saudi has the resources locally and the expertise internationally to respond to future calls for tenders with the aim of investment continuity in the kingdom with a set of objectives: safety, satisfaction, diversity of services—and to train our Saudi collaborators in order for them to strive in the world of intelligent transport systems. We are proud of our dynamic and diverse team and their pioneering work, the management of RATP Dev Saudi is honored to participate in the prosperity of the kingdom which creates a strong link between the two capitals—Riyadh and Paris.

      — Denis Guillois, General Manager at RATP Dev Saudi
