Test out the new on-demand bus service

Test out our new bus

 Posted on Nov 28, 2019

We are pleased to inform you that Community Life are testing a new app-based mobility service which aims to enhance the experience for community members who use on-campus busses.

The new service will have several advantages:
  • Flexible and on-demand - Bus comes when you need it and takes you where you want to go in campus and residential areas of KAUST
  • Save your time - The average trip duration is shorter than the existing service
  • Eco-friendly – The new service emits and consumes less than the existing service

On-demand or Autonomous?

Please note that this new on-demand bus is a separate service to the autonomous shuttle which is also launching soon. Learn more about the autonomous shuttle.

Be from the first group to try out the on-demand bus

To try this new service, download the MaaCOM app available on Google Play Store or Apple Store. Then, give it a try to go anywhere you want in the campus and residential areas of KAUST between 8:00 P.M. and 1:00 A.M. The test period will continue until December 10.
