Emaar and hopOn partner for sustainable mobility in KAEC




Emaar, The Economic City, the master-developer of King Abdullah Economic City (KAEC), has forged a partnership with hopOn, a rapidly growing smart city solutions provider for public and shared transportation, said Mansour Al-Salem, Managing Director of Emaar, The Economic City. The collaboration, formalized with an official agreement signed last week in Riyadh, underscores a shared commitment to smart mobility and sustainability, aligning with Saudi Vision 2030. The agreement, inked by Cyril Piaia, CEO of Emaar, The Economic City, and Jamil Naji Jamjoom, Co-Founder and CEO of hopOn, during the two-day PIF Private Sector Forum, aims to enhance the transportation infrastructure within KAEC. The partnership will lead hopOn’s expertise in smart city solutions to establish a seamless and efficient transportation network catering to the diverse needs of KAEC’s residents and visitors. This encompasses last-mile linkage from the Haramain train station to key districts, various bus routes, and an array of on-demand transportation options, including e-shuttles, vans, two-wheel scooters, three-wheel scooters, mechanical bikes, and electric bikes.
