​​​​​Alternative Transportation

KAUST achieves a higher quality of transportation with less use of resources through smart design, incorporation of new technology, and innovation in technology. The community’s comprehensive alternative transportation plan is an innovative method conceived to reduce the overall carbon footprint of the project by minimizing the impact of single occupancy vehicles through careful design and planning.

Alternative Fuel Vehicles and Shuttle Buses for Campus and Community Use
The KAUST campus and community, especially KAUST Security, utilizes an electric Segway sharing program for short-distance travel. The KAUST bus system has dedicated stops throughout the campus and community to ensure easy access for all users wishing to reach the Harbor District commercial center, campus, recreational areas and secondary education schools. Bicycles are widely used with bicycle racks widely available.
