Finding comfortable transportation with good facilities is always a challenge in Egypt. And many Egyptians are always looking for new alternatives to flying to their favourite Red Sea destinations.

A recent viral Facebook post about a new bus service may have the answer to our problems. Blue Bus is a new service that offers luxurious, affordable travel from Cairo to the Red Sea's Hurghada and Sharm El Sheikh and vice versa. The company offers three classes of tickets; comfort, business, and first, all of which include free snacks and drinks, WIFi, DVD players, bathroom facilities, and a trip tracking service. The first and business classes also provide you with a private screen, USB port and earphones.With all these services, the tickets are fairly well-priced. A comfort class ticket costs EGP 150, while business costs EGP 220, and first class will set you back only EGP 290. So forget about plane tickets for your next trip, because who doesn’t want to say they’re traveling first class?
