UAE hands over 200 buses to Egypt

(Cairo) – The UAE has delivered 200 buses to Egypt as part of a plan to provide 600 units to Egypt’s public transport sector. A special ceremony was organised at Abdeen Square to mark the handing over of the buses in the presence of Dr. Sultan bin Ahmed Sultan Al Jaber, Minister of State and Chairman of Coordination Office of UAE-funded Development Projects in Egypt, and senior Egyptian officials.
One hundred buses were made by the Abu Dhabi-based Hafilat Industries LLC, and the other 100 were made by the Egypt-based GB Polo Buses Manufacturing S.A.E. (GB Polo).
The UAE’s bus project is aimed at reducing traffic congestion in the Egyptian capital and serves some 600,000 citizens. It will also reduce the public transport fare by 50 percent and increase road safety.
