Improving driver behaviour

Crisis statement: Egyptian drivers have been described as undisciplined. The most common complaints are: making improper turns, sudden and constant change of lanes without notice or consideration of other drivers; jumping queues in dense traffic; blocking intersections and roads for no reason; speeding and dangerous driving. Such behaviour leads to traffic congestion and increase in traffic accid... Read More »

Increasing effective traffic enforcement

Crisis statement: Most traffic violations in Cairo – such as speeding, driving in the wrong lane – go without penalty or warning. Traffic enforcement officers have very few ways of reporting and keeping track of violations. If violations continue to go unpenalized, driving behavior on the roads of Cairo will likely be hard to change. Therefore there is a need to equip traffic enforcement offi... Read More »

As microbuses operate in an ad hoc manner, they cannot effectively plan for commuter needs and volumes... Read More »

Crisis statement: 14 million cars are on the roads of Cairo every day and 70% carry only 1-2 persons per car. As the Cairo population grows together with the number of cars, there is an increased need for efficient means to share rides whether it is public transportation, micro buses, taxis or even personal vehicles. The goal of shared rides is to reduce the costs of travel (cost of petrol etc.) ... Read More »

Harassment and other personal safety issues

Crisis statement: There is an alarmingly high rate of harassment specifically in the public transportation services (metro, buses, microbuses and pedestrians) and there are few systems, tools, or any ICT or mobile-solutions in place dedicated to monitor and report incidents, and to facilitate behavior change. A 2008 study on harassment in Egypt found that out of the respondents, 83% said they had... Read More »
