Antiquities Ministry to buy electric buses for Giza Plateau

The Antiquities Ministry is studying offers from 10 local companies on a tender for 35 electric-powered buses to transport tourists around the Giza Plateau, according to Mohamed Ismail, the director of the area’s development project. The winning company, which will manage the service and take charge of maintenance, will receive a share of ticket sales, Ismail tells Al Mal, without going into specifics. The Giza Plateau’s EGP 400 mn development project means to make the area more tourist friendly by zoning off the different activities, as well as limiting the presence of hawkers and peddlers, says Arab News.
