Bus Rapid Transit for Greater Cairo: Prefeasibility Assessment
Densely populated Cairo and Giza have begun to look to bus rapid transit (BRT) as a cost-effective means of expanding the rapid transit network in a short time frame, in order to solve problems with traffic congestion in the metro area. In 2015, ITDP preformed a pre-feasibility study for bus rapid transit (BRT) in Cairo, New Cairo, and Giza. Supported by UN-HABITAT Cairo, ITDP held meetings with relevant planning bodies and conducted preliminary data collection on road segments with significant public demand. This report showcases and examines the results of this study.
