Cairo gets double-decker public buses for the first time.
Cairo is set to introduce 40 double-decker public buses in 2018, according to the city's governor Atef Abuldhamid.
The first 12 "European-styled" buses are expected to become operational in the early part of the new year with other 28 coming on stream over the course of 2018.
The buses will be able to accommodate up to 70 passengers and will be employed on the city's most congested routes.
The governor also said that the double-decker buses would be joined by an additional 150 minibuses and 130 natural gas-operated regular-sized buses.
