EGYPT: State replaces animals with electric vehicles in tourism
The Egyptian Ministry of Tourism announces its intention to use electric buses for the transport of visitors to the main tourist sites and archaeological areas of the country. The measure is ecological, but its main reason is zoological. It aims at preserving the animals that are bending under the weight of tourism.
The pyramids of the Giza Plateau in Egypt will soon experience a revolution in the means of transport available to visitors. The Egyptian Ministry of Tourism offers electric cars and buses to take tourists around the pyramids and the archaeological areas of the country.
This is in line with the new vision of mobility as advocated by the sustainable city concepts. The use of electric vehicles is an eco-responsible option, as they emit much less greenhouse gases (GHG) than petrol vehicles. However, for the ecological advantage of electric vehicles advertised in Egyptian tourist sites to become a reality, the electricity used by these vehicles would have to come from a renewable source. These details will certainly be provided during the design and implementation phase of the electric mobility project in Egypt’s tourist sites.
