Public bus system
There is a public bus system that offers several lines of service in different classes and prices. There is the standard air-conditioned bus service, known as CTA (short for Cairo Transportation Authority), for a higher price, and Mini-buses (smaller buses with a extensive network).
Other transportation services includes the traditional Cairo Taxi and Micro-buses, both are privately run by individuals. The traditional Cairo Taxi is also run by individuals and usually operate on older models of cars that are slowly being replaced by the government plans in an effort for a more modern look in the city and to offer a more reliable, luxurious and advanced taxi service in modern air-conditioner cars.
