Service taxis from Riyadh to Jeddah?

I know there is bus transportation between the two cities, but are there service taxis as well?  If so, where in Riyadh are these taxis stationed?

Its a good question,where is the bus terminal to Jeddah?

Saptco bus terminalin riyadh is just past batha. It is modern bus sation. Buses go from here to all over ksa. (sapto buses are what we in the uk would refer to as coach. they are modern, toilet facility and air condition)

serviced taxi ??? there are taxi's which you can get from Batha just after Riyad Bank which take you to all over ksa including jeddah. They charge per passenger (and the taxi wont go until it has five passengers) and are largely used by employers to send labour people in an emergency to a site in a different city.

Do you mean SAPTCO bus station? That's in the area called Aziziyah District - South Riyadh (ALL taxi drivers know).

The taxi service in Batha is quite indecent. They rush you to Jeddah in 5-6 hours usually breaking all limits; can be risky.

Hi all,Thanks SaudiUK for the information regarding the bus terminal.
