Inefficient microbus system

Crisis statement: Cairo has an extended, informal microbus network that is unregulated and contributes to congestion and safety hazards. There are no formal routes and time frames for microbuses, which makes it hard for commuters to effectively plan their trips using this mode of transportation. As microbuses operate in an ad hoc manner, they cannot effectively plan for commuter needs and volumes, therefore they can be unnecessarily oversubscribed or idle for extended periods of time. Furthermore, the driving behaviour of microbuses is described as dangerous due its unregulated nature, posing risk for other commuters and vehicles. How can we help reduce congestion through safer, more efficient microbuses and help meet the need of commuters for this mode of transport? Possible solutions would have to take into account limitations on the part of the microbus divers and operators to address some of this issues.
