Enter Transport for Cairo (TfC). This organization consisting of young Egyptians are looking to revolutionize the city’s chaotic transit system. While a basic Metro map does exist, no tourist in their right mind would try getting anywhere using the city’s bus network or its informal network of microbuses. After all, Cairenes are forced to navigate the system without any sort of maps or other official guidance from the agencies operating the system. TfC is working to develop maps and other data sources for the city’s commuters to use to figure out how to get around the sprawling metropolis. You can read about their work in this article from CityLab.
Oren’s Reading List is an occasional feature on The Travelogue in which I share articles that I’ve read that might also be of interest to the readers of this website.
