Abstract
The Greater Cairo is one of the most crowded cities in the world and it is the biggest metropolitan area in Middle East. The high population density in the Greater Cairo causes traffic problems that harm many living aspects. This study discusses one of the solutions for limiting the traffic congestions using bicycle as an alternative transportation mean which is already applied in many other countries.
There are many models have been introduced to study the suitability of having bicyclists on a motor road. This study will apply some of the most commonly used models created to measure bicycling suitability.in Down Town Cairo area.
A GIS tool has been created to conduct applying the bicycling suitability models on the study area’s streets.... (More)

The results of this study encourage having alternative transportation network for bicycles in Down Town Cairo. A GIS tool created that is a user-friendly tool and it could be used for other researches in different areas or countries. (Less)
