Frustrated by Cairo’s traffic. Many of Cairo’s youth are resorting to an alternative means of transportation: Scooters
Scooters are much more joyful to ride. You take less time to get where you want to go, and best of all, saves you the hassle of finding a parking spot in this very crowded city. Of course, you’ll be doing the environment a lot of good too by burning less fuel. Especially in an already polluted metropolis like Cairo.
Social Media is a key player in spreading this culture. With the rise of Facebook groups such as Cairo Scooters Club, and many others. Enthusiasts and people interested in the idea can congregate and share their experience. Providing guidance to new joiners on different models, tips and tricks.
Other initiatives include Cairo Scooter Diaries, which takes a more visual approach. Spreading periodic images of Cairo from behind the dashboard of a Scooter
