Bombardier will be working on the project as part of a group, the ArRiyadh New Mobility Consortium, which comprises two groups that will design, build, construct and commission Line 3. The total contract is worth US$5.9 billion.

Line 3, also known as the Red Line, is a turnkey project that includes the civil construction of the 40.7 kilometre alignment, including 22 stations, electrical and mechanical equipment and rolling stock.

The new Riyadh Metro system will comprise six metro lines totalling approximately 176 kms, which are to be implemented over five years.
