Bus Services



On-demand service

Operates 7 days a week from 6:30 A.M. to 1:00 A.M.

The On-demand Bus comes when you need it and takes you where you want to go in campus and residential areas of KAUST.  To use the on-demand bus, download the Rekab app available on Google Play Store or Apple App Store

Tips to consider when using the on-demand bus: 

  • Remember you can book for multiple passengers – and you don’t even need to be one of them. You can book a ride for a family member without joining them on the bus. 
  • A smartphone is not required to book a trip with the on-demand bus; you can call the Saptco helpdesk for booking assistance at 012-808-5222 between  6:00 A.M. and 1:00 A.M.  
  • Book a little ahead of time. For example, if you want a bus to pick you up as close to 5:10 as possible, don’t wait until 5:10 to make your request – start making your request at 5:00.
