Transportation to Taif Airport from the City Center

Buses are the most convenient option that you can choose to reach the airport from Taif city center. You can also get to the airport by taxi or by renting a car from the city center.

Bus

Direct buses to the airport depart from Al Taif Station in Taif Al Faisaliah. Local bus services operated by SAPTCO depart on short intervals. According to the current information in SAPTCO's web site the fare you will pay for this trip, which is about 30 kilometers, is 15 Saudi Riyals and it takes about 1 hour. You can make your reservation at the official website of SAPTCO or you can get your ticket from the sales points. It is also possible to buy tickets from almost every stop.

Taxi

You must absolutely have an agreement with the driver about the fare before you start your journey, if you are taking a taxi without a taximeter. Otherwise, you can pay really high fares. Taxis are the least preferred means of transportation by visitors of Taif, where there is not much alternatives in terms of transportation in the city.

Taxi fares are more expensive than other means of transportation. This is why we recommend you take advantage of the bus or car rental service instead of taxis. You should be careful about the taxi you take. In Taif, limousine taxis, for example, are also available and they are much more expensive than regular taxis.

Car Rental

There are car rental companies located in the city as well as in Taif Airport. Car rental companies are as popular as local buses, as the oil prices here are low. In additions, there are extremely modern highways in Taif that has links to all nearby cities. You can go to the airport with your vehicle rented from Taif city and deliver it to the same car rental company in the terminal.
