We are proud to announce the 6th edition of this flagship report from the UITP MENA Center for Transport Excellence.

Covering a lot of ground! 37 cities in 13 countries…

Detailed information from 37 cities in 13 countries. The latest MENA Transport Report doesn’t hold back in its scope with its regional overview maps. This edition also contains six new city chapters from Egypt, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates.

A wide variety of information from a wide geographic area!

Benchmarking for greater context

Perspective matters. And this is where top-notch benchmarking comes in. Modal share, transport supply, ridership and more – international and regional benchmarking offered in this report shows the progress within the region.

Tracking digitalised public transport services

The future of public transport is exciting, and digitalisation is the hot topic these days. With good reason too: digitalisation is part of the wider vision of sustainable mobility.

The maps in this report track the process of digitalising public transport services through e-ticketing and trip planners, presenting a quality overview of the services offered across the region.

An essential data reference point

This report is the go-to resource for policymakers, decision-makers, industry leaders, and academic researchers for business development, target-setting, and research.

Factchecked and revised, the 6th edition builds upon previous knowledge while covering more cities, more projects, and more data.
