Egypt has one of the oldest railway systems in the world. This legacy of adopting mass transit solutions to its ever-growing population has gone on since the 1960s to this day when Egypt produces thousands of buses every year.

Although Egypt still doesn’t have the technical capabilities to make the buses from scratch, the percentage of local components is increasing every year as buses are exported to clients as far as the Caribbean.

Last March, Egypt signed a protocol with Spanish train maker Talgo to make passenger carriages to upgrade some of its older train models and help maintain its mixed fleet of various models.

The TransMEA forum will be taking place at the Egypt International Exhibition Center – EIEC on November 5-8, you can register for the event through the TransMEA website.
