The objective of this project was to design the new official transit maps for the 3rd Cairo Metro Line as part of the Rebranding Project for Green Line 3, newly operated by RATP Dev Mobility Cairo (RDMC). TfC designed six different maps, such as the Metro Network map, the Ticket guide maps, the Station Neighborhood maps etc.

In 2019 AFD commissioned us to conduct a study map the public transport network of GKMA. In 10 weeks we collected the data  using our Route Observer application, observing 1492 trips and 587 routes operating out of Matatu stages across GKMA. Video feeds were used for traffic counts and machine learning algorithms were used to classify vehicles across selected sections for analysis.

Completed
The WB contracted TfC to choose the 3 optimal corridors for public transport interventions and ideal locations for 10 Park-and-Ride facilities. TfC conducted a metropolitan level analysis of accessibility across 1613 places in the GCR at the present, and compared it with the expected impact of all alternatives to arrive at the most impactful options. This required the creation of a comprehensive spatial employment model, a population distribution model, metropolitan level analysis of traffic using Big Data and other methodological innovations.
