"Airport Bus" Bus/Microbus Tip by illumina

Bus/Microbus, Cairo: 24 reviews and 28 photos

We decided to save money and get the local bus from the airport into Cairo city centre. It's not the easiest thing to find, as there are no signs, but we asked a few people, and got pointed in the right direction. Even when you find the bus station you'll still have to check with someone which is the right bus, but it's worth it - the trip only cost 2LE (about 20p) each, and we weren't even charged extra for our (rather large) rucksacks! Plus, you're travelling with locals, even if it does get a bit crowded and there are frequently people hanging out of the open door while chatting to the driver who is hurtling through the traffic at breakneck speed!
