Blue or Al Raml Tram
The tram is the oldest means of transportation in Africa. I did not have the chance to ride on the tram in Alex but had the chance to see them running few streets from the seafront in Corniche. It consists of 2 systems - the blue which is the Tram Al Raml and the yellow tram which is called Tram Al Madina. The Blue System or the Tram Al Raml serves 38 stations
Interior View of Alexandria-Cairo Train
I guess our round trip from Cairo to Alexandria very recently was quite comfortable. There is actually no hassle having the first class ticket which costs me a total of 243 Egyptian Pounds for 3 round trip tickets.
I posted here the interior of the train and copies of our 6 tickets. BTW, I purchased the ticket the night prior to our departure. I guess it is better although not too many passengers on the day of our trip on October 24, 2008.
Private Car of a Friend in Alex
Yes, I was lucky enough to have a local friend Karim. He is from Alexandria and he made our stay and tour of Alexandria very comfortable and easy. It was unforgettable and very pleasant stay as we tour literally the whole city non-stop for the whole day and part of the night using his private car.
Mind you, not too many people are like Karim. I cannot say more about him. He is totally a fantastic guy.

The picture shows the traditional carriage in Egypt. I took these photos in Alexandria and I feel that this is the best and most enjoyable way to tour the city. I suppose the carriage can be hired with a driver which can be found in the main street.
Taxicab in Alexandria, Egypt
If you are in Alexandria, you will see black/yellow taxi. This is the colour of taxi used by everyone in the city. Each taxi should have a meter but it is a common practice that it is not being used. You may ask a local person on the approximate fare from point to point and when the time comes that you need to board a taxi, make sure you agreed on the fare before you get in.
I posted photos of taxi in Alexandria with this tip.
