Brunei Darussalam’s intending Haj pilgrims will on Sunday join around two million other pilgrims for the Wukuf in Arafah. The Wukuf is the most important Haj ritual and will take place on Monday. Because of the great convergence of pilgrims at Arafah, bus services play the most vital role in transporting the intending haj pilgrims into the area.

27 bus companies under the supervision of ‘General Motor Syndicate’ will transport this year’s pilgrims. Apart from the 18 thousand buses, more than twenty two thousand drivers have been recruited from Egypt and Sudan. More than 850 buses are also placed on standby for emergencies or to replace damaged buses. 25 buses are provided to transport Brunei Darussalam’s haj pilgrims starting from the day of arrival to their departure.
