Explanation:

[STC00270] Cairo in Egypt and Algiers in Algeria are the only two cities on the African continent that each have their very own subterranean metro systems.

Egypt’s capital city is home to Africa’s first and oldest metro system, which began service in 1987 and now has three lines operating underground (with more planned).

Every year, more than 500 million people use the metro system in Cairo.

In the meantime, after nearly three decades of planning and construction, the Algiers subway finally opened its doors in 2011.

It operates on a single route that goes around the Mediterranean Sea and has planned extensions; at the moment, it transports approximately 28 million passengers every year.

Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, which is the capital of Ethiopia and one of Africa’s largest cities, is one of the cities that features an above-ground light rail network that launched in 2015.
