About 8 million pilgrims using about 30,000 vehicles were transported to and from the Grand Mosque during the first eight days of Ramadan, the Makkah Governate announced Sunday.

The number of pilgrims given transportation was a sharp increase over the same period in 2016 when an estimated 5.3 million pilgrims in 22,000 vehicles were transported during the 2016 Ramadan.

The transport plan approved by Makkah Gov. Prince Khaled Al-Faisal has resulted in the success of transporting the passengers. Currently procedures for the transfer of pilgrims to and from the Grand Mosque are covered by the transport plan. An estimated 35 million passengers are expected to be transported to the Grand Mosque during Ramadan.
