SANA, Yemen – Xiamen King Long United Automotive Industry Co., Ltd. (King Long) delivered three buses to Yemen’s largest transportation company RAHA here on July 24, reported gasgoo.com.
The buses will be used to expand intercity transportation and also to move more Muslims to Saudi Arabia by road as much as possible. RAHA expects to import a dozen more buses from King Long by the end of the year.
With a seating capacity of 40, the exported buses have received certification from the Yemen Transportation Ministry for operation in the country.
This is the first time King Long has exported buses to Yemen. King Long’s sister company, Xiamen Golden Dragon Bus, exported 20 small buses to the Yemeni Office of the President in May 2004.
