Ahmed Nashaat: Transport for Cairo to Improve Commutes

Industry: Travel

The group’s goal is to map both the city’s formal and informal public transit systems to save commuters time and reduce the stress they experience.

Cairo, Egypt (PRUnderground) April 14th, 2017

Transport for Cairo, also known as TfC, is a group of young professionals who are striving to make commuters lives easier in the Egyptian city of Cairo during rush hour. The group’s goal is to map both the city’s formal and informal public transit systems to save commuters time and reduce the stress they experience when getting from point A to point B in a municipal region featuring 20 million people.

So far, TfC has created and published the data required for developers to put together an app for planning trips, as well as other tools. To collect data regarding buses run by the city government, which have about 500 routes, the group relied on the World Bank. Then, the group, which includes people with backgrounds in areas such as civil engineering and urban planning, asked university students and the general public to help to verify the data by sending them photographs of buses near their offices and homes that had been geotagged. Through this method, the group was able to verify 20 bus lines based on 750 pictures.

The group shared their data in community workshops designed to unite student designers and professionals to create maps. Up to now, the Cairo community has been able to develop a few versions of transit system maps, with the workshop participants tackling issues such as whether the maps should be schematic or geographically schematic, or how people could locate their destinations and themselves.

TfC has also begun to ride the city’s microbuses and track their journeys using their cell phones’ GPS feature, just as Columbia University and MIT researchers did when attempting to map Nairobi, Kenya’s privately owned minibus. Right now, community through Cairo is generally considered a miserable experience, but through its efforts, TfC hopes it will be able to change that.

Ahmed Nashaat: Transport for Cairo to Map Transit Systems

Their goal is to be the first people to map the Egyptian’s city complicated public transit systems.

Cairo, Egypt (PRUnderground) March 31st, 2017

A group of young Egyptians known as Transport for Cairo, or TfC, realize that a trip through the streets of Cairo on a given day can feel like an excursion through the jungle thanks to gridlock traffic and blaring horns. That is why their goal is to be the first people to map the Egyptian’s city complicated public transit systems.

The group features young adults with backgrounds in such areas as architecture, urban planning, economics, and civil engineering. According to TfC, motorists in Cairo wrestle with hours of unpredictable traffic, which makes it difficult for them to be productive in their daily lives. This problem affects about 66 percent of the Cairo region’s 20 million people who depend on the public transit systems. These individuals rely on formal buses and subways to arrive at their destinations, and in areas where these formal systems do not reach, the city uses its informal network of between about 20,000 and 80,000 microbuses that are privately run.

What makes navigating through Cairo on your own more difficult than navigating through New York City or London is that currently, no real-time transit updates or maps are available for guiding commuters, according to Cairo resident and engineer Ahmed Nashaat. The city does offer a map featuring its three metro lines, but little else is provided. In addition, the buses that the government operates do have schedules, they rarely go by them.

TfC’s goal is not merely to create a paper map of Cairo’s public transit systems but to create mobile transit apps as well. The data that the group is collecting feed into what is known as the General Transit Feed Specification, or GTFS, which allows public transit information to be shared openly among both application developers and transit agencies. Right now, GTFS works for networks with fixed schedules, but TfC would like to adapt this standard in an effort to make it work with the informal transit system in Cairo, too.
