Cairo Bus Routes, a new website map, was created and launched in the beginning of 2015 by expat Tristan Thomas residing in Cairo with the aim to provide free information available to the public on public transport in Cairo, Egypt.

Cairo Bus Routes is a free companion to help to travel quickly and cheaply around the capital city where the traffic is chaotic. With updated information and new routes added every week, it is a guide to the Cairene streets.

Cairo Bus Routes features English and Arabic bus numbers, published routes for all listed buses, detailed explanations of prices, etiquette, hand signals, kind of amenities could be found inside and more.

With the free service you can browse all available bus routes, where they stop and their bus numbers; there`s even images of what they look like. This is for both public buses as well as microbuses.

  • 100% free and anyone can contribute.
  • Free Content, meaning you are free to use and copy it (CC BY-SA).
  • Available on iTunes and Android.

The eventual aim of the solution is to have every public and private bus in Cairo documented and mapped and become the preeminent source of Cairo bus information.
