Transport of Egypt - The Cairo metro

Transport of Egypt - The Cairo metro Last updated on Friday 16th April 2010

The city of Cairo has its own metro system -- the only one in Egypt. It is fast, cheap and uncrowded, and has done a great deal to reduce the volume of traffic in the city centre.

Its single line of stations stretches for 43km from ::I in the south to Al-Marg near ::I. Only five stations in the centre of Cairo run underground.

Two more lines are scheduled to open at a future date, and plans for a similar system in Alexandria are in the early stages.
