The city of Riyadh has decided on a unified design for over 200 metro cars, and different colors for various routes, for its future turnkey six-line metro project, which is scheduled for completion in 2018.

1Experts decided on the new design after considering submissions from the three consortiums working on the metro project, the Arriyadh Development Authority tweeted Monday.

The unified design will make the metro project more distinguished and convenient for passengers, especially with each metro line having a different car color code, the commission said.

The project, dubbed the King Abdulaziz Project for Riyadh Public Transportation, has assigned a color code for each line through the city. The blue metro serves the Olaya-Batha line, green the King Abdullah Round Road line, red the Madinah-Prince Saad bin Abdulrahman Al-Awal line, orange the King Khaled Airport Road line, yellow for the underground tunnel line along King Abdulaziz Street between King Abdulaziz Historical Center and the Riyadh Airbase, and the purple metro for the Abdulrahman bin Auf and Al-Sheikh Hassan Bin Hussain line.

The metro cars have special seating for singles, families, and first class. Passengers will be able to connect to the metro Wi-Fi. More info
