Wusool transport program extends support for women in Saudi Arabia

The Human Resources Development Fund (Hadaf) has extended the support period for Saudi women employees registered with the transportation program “Wusool” to 24 months instead of 12 months.
As per the program’s new mechanism, beneficiaries can receive an 80 percent discount on the cost of each trip. This is after the ceiling of support has been increased to SR1,100 a month for beneficiaries with a monthly wage not exceeding SR6,000 and SR800 for beneficiaries with a monthly wage of SR6,001-SR8,000.
The service is provided through companies licensed by the Ministry of Transport to ensure the safety of Wusool’s beneficiaries and maintain a high-quality service. Saudi women wishing to participate as vehicle drivers can join the licensed companies that work with Wusool.
The Wusool program covers 13 regions across the Kingdom: Riyadh, Makkah, the Eastern Province, Madinah, Tabuk, Asir, Qassim, Hail, Jazan, the Northern Border, Najran, Al-Jouf and Al-Baha.
