Mahmoud Kafrawi - Kuwait
Kuwait has witnessed the opening of the first air-conditioned bus station with Internet access, which has attracted the admiration of many users of public transport, and prompted them to demand the generalization of the experience.
This step is compounded by the high summer temperatures, which sometimes exceed 55 degrees Celsius, as monitoring stations recorded some areas in Kuwait ranking the hottest in the world last summer.
Kuwait has one public transport company, founded in 1962, in addition to another private sector company. The number of public transport stations is about 1600.
It is estimated that 8% of the population - numbering about 4.6 million people - depend on mass transportation, the country plans to expand mass transportation to solve the problem of traffic congestion, and there is a government plan to establish a subway line in the coming years.
