what bus service is available from Medina to Mecca and how much does it cost? if not bus, how about Taxi cost?
SAPTCO is the government owned bus service that charge SR 80/ for one way and SR 140/ for round trip and the timing is Madinah to Makkah (Saturday)10 am 15 pm (Sunday)10 pm 15 pm (Monday)10 pm 15 pm
As responded above by Sadiq, SAPTCO runs frequent buses between Makkah and Madinah. If I remember correctly, one needs to take the passport for booking.
you can find many buses , and it,s take about 4 hours .
By bus it will take 5 to 6 hours but a private car or taxi will take four hours.
