Nile buses in Cairo will now be seen more often, following years of limited performance in which many lines were cancelled and the fleet suffered from a lack of maintenance and investment.
The Nile bus line between Giza district and Warak, to the north, will be operational after seven years of suspension, said Sayed Abdel-Fattah, an official with Cairo's Public Transport Authority (PTA), according to Al-Ahram's Arabic news website.
Other stations will also be added, including one in the upscale neighbourhood of Zamalek, Abdel-Fattah told Al-Ahram.
The river buses will run from 8am until 10pm and on two shifts.
The modernisation plan will also include special offers for schools and universities.
