Trials begin on Giza Pyramids electric bus route

Orascom Pyramids began trialing the new eco-friendly bus route at the Giza Plateau earlier the week after receiving the first electric bus, the cabinet said in a statement. The route, part of the ongoing Giza development project, will feature six stations and take tourists on a circular route between the visitor center and the pyramids complex. This came on the same day that Orascom Pyramids opened the doors of its 9 Pyramids Lounge restaurant. Under its contract with the government, the Orascom Investment Holding subsidiary will be in charge of operating the visitor center, organizing events and providing guiding material. AFP took note of the newly launched bus route.
