The King Khaled International Airport (RUH) is the major airport that serves Riyadh and the surrounding area. Most major international airlines provide service to Riyadh. Travel within the kingdom of Saudi Arabia is provided only by Saudia airlines. Taxis are readily available outside the terminal to take you into the city proper.

If you plan to rent a car, you can pick it up at the airport; international car rental companies such as Avis and Budget have service desks in the terminal. Some of the larger hotels also have car rental desks. It is important to note that women are not allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia. In addition, driving can be extremely dangerous within the country; Saudi Arabia has one of the highest vehicle accident/fatalilty rates in the world.

The bus station is located near to Al-Bathaa Street downtown. A number of buses provide daily service to Jeddeh and other destinations throughout the country.
