This is the scandalous state of bus stops in Sin el-Fil. Greater Beirut municipalities and the CDR have no policy for public transportation : only neglect. This is the outcome of blind privatization and abdication of public responsibility. The municipalities are good at lip service and grand posturing about future projects, but in reality, this is the status of their accomplishments.
As a result, the use of public transporation in Greater Beirut went from 8% of trips in 1999, to 2% of trips in 2011. (Agence Française de Développement)
There are clearly other priorities than building yet another highway.
