Video | Design work starts on new city-wide public transport system for Jeddah

Architect Foster + Partners has been appointed to start design development of a new city-wide public transport system for Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

The work includes design of metro, ferry, bus, cycle and public spaces.

Foster + Partners will develop the ‘architectural vision’ of the plan, which includes design of the stations, trains and branding. Currently only 12% of the population of Jeddah live within a ten minute walk of a transport link, the project aims to increase this to 50%.
