The King Fahad Causeway Authority chief executive officer Emad bin Ibrahim Al Muhaisan announced the launch of the experimental operation for motorcycles traffic between Saudi Arabia and Bahrain via King Fahad Causeway, starting on Wednesday 1/1/2020 from eight in the morning after the approval of the competent authorities in both kingdoms.
He explained that the far-right track has been dedicated to handling the procedures of motorcyclists check-in and out on both sides of the kingdoms. Fee payment paths for both sides to collect the transit fees for motorcyclists crossing have been provided, which will be 25 riyals or 2.50 Bahraini dinars for one direction.
Al Muhaisan confirmed that cross-country motorcyclists will be allowed to cross and travel between the two kingdoms during the trial run period, provided that the bikes must be licensed and have traffic plates and are subject to the laws and regulations in force in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Kingdom of Bahrain. The service will be available round the clock, seven days a week, and shall be stopped temporarily to protect the travelers in cases of bad weather.
