Supreme Council of Antiquities and Orascom Pyramids Entertainment launch trial operations for the new service areas at Giza Pyramids Plateau

Supreme Council of Antiquities and Orascom Pyramids Entertainment launched trial operations for the new service areas at Giza Pyramids Plateau as part of their cooperation protocol to develop, operate, and raise the efficiency of services provided to visitors in the Giza Pyramids area.

This phase is a trial operation of the new entrance gates of the Visitor Center on Fayoum Road, seven new visitors’ centers, an international restaurant complex, and an electric bus system.

The trial operations also include the first set of environmentally friendly electric cars and buses. The waiting area at the Visitor Center Station accommodates approximately 1,000 cars and buses.

The electric buses and cars will serve visitors to the Giza pyramids area and will allow them to enjoy a distinct tourist experience where they can view the various archaeological sites in the region through 7 main stations.

Orascom Pyramids Entertainment, Chairman and CEO, Hesham Gadallah, indicated that the implementation of this clean energy system in the Giza Pyramids plateau with the Supreme Council of Antiquities, is in line with the agenda of reducing carbon emissions, especially in light of Egypt hosting COP27 this November in Sharm El-Sheikh.
