Project Manager is needed for the New Communities Transport Unit of the Arab Republic of Egypt
The Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP) promotes sustainable and equitable transport worldwide. ITDP is a nonprofit organization headquartered in New York City with offices in Africa, Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Mexico and the United States. ITDP’s programs focus on bus rapid transit, non-motorized travel, travel demand management, parking, transport policy and urban development. More information about ITDP can be found at www.itdp.org.
ITDP is currently working in partnership with UN-Habitat and the New Urban Communities Authority (NUCA) to plan a first-phase BRT system for Greater Cairo. ITDP is also preparing plans for a bicycle sharing system and bike lane network in downtown Cairo. Home to approximately 20 million people, the Greater Cairo Region is considered to be one of the most congested cities in the world. Over the years, public transport infrastructure has not been able to keep up with demand, leading to increasing pollution and time spent in traffic. To address these challenges, the Minister of Housing, Utilities, and Urban Communities issued Decree No. 1063 of 2018, which calls for establishing a unit to organize public transport in the New Communities under the authority of the New Urban Communities Authority (NUCA). Responsibilities of the New Communities Transport Unit (NCTU) include planning and managing public transport services in the New Communities and improving connectivity to central Cairo and Giza.
Following are the responsibilities of the New Communities Transport Unit:
