RIYADH: AlUla’s battery-powered tramway is a testament to Saudi Arabia’s journey toward a sustainable, innovative transportation system, insists a top official from the company behind its design.

Speaking to Arab News, Mohammed Khalil, managing director of Alstom KSA, said the project — which spans 22.4 km with 17 stations — marks the world’s longest battery-powered, catenary-free tramway line.

He added that this demonstrates a key focus on carbon emission reduction and green transportation.
