Cairo Public Bus Ticket Prices Increase by up to 50 Percent

Cairo Public Bus Ticket Prices Increase by up to 50 Percent

The prices of tickets for Cairo’s public bus system will increase by up to 50 percent, reported state-media Al-Ahram.

According the Cairo Public Transport Authority, ticket prices will increase by 50 piasters for EGP 1 and EGP 2 tickets. EGP 1 tickets will be sold for EGP 1.5, and EGP 2 tickets will be sold for EGP 2.5.

The Cairo Public Authority told MENA that the increase in prices will allow it to develop the bus network and improve the services provided to the public.

The Authority added that the increase was also the result of a recent increase in petroleum prices. In June, the prices for 80 octane gasoline increased from EGP 2.35 to EGP 3.65 per litre. Prices for 92 octane gasoline climbed to EGP 5 from EGP 3.50 per litre. Also, diesel prices increased from EGP 2.35 to EGP 3.65 per litre. Prices for butane gas doubled reaching EGP 30 instead of EGP 15.

The increase follows a similar increase in metro ticket prices. Metro ticket prices increased earlier this year from EGP 1 to EGP 2.
