NMS Bans Matatu From CBD for 1 Day – Kenya Breaking News Now | Kenya Latest News


The third test run at Green Park will be conducted on Wednesday June 16, 2021 from 5 am to 9 pm. 

Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) will ban matatus from driving and parking in the CBD for the entire day. 

Director General Mohamed Badi stated that the exercise will enable NMS to plan extensively before enforcing a permanent ban in their bid to decongest the city. 

This will involve dropping and picking of passengers from PSVs operating using Langata Road, Ngong Road and Argwings Kodhek road to Kikuyu, Ngong, Kawangware, Dagoreti, Kibera.

Also those from Highrise, Ngumo, Rongai, Kiserian, Otiende, Langata, Otiende, Madaraka and Nairobi West will be affected. 

Matatus using Moi Avenue Service Lane (Outside Development, AGRHO and Gill houses), Nairobi Railway Station Bus Terminus, Hakati Stage, Ambassador, Mfangano Street and Kencom will also use the Green Park Terminus during the test run.

Machakos and Kitengela bound PSVs operating from the Nairobi Railway Station Bus Terminus will use Lusaka Road from Nyayo Stadium roundabout to Hakati Bus terminus where Langata and Nairobi West/Madaraka vehicles operate from.

“After completion of the test run, PSV pick up and drop off will continue from the normal places until further notice. 

“Nairobi Metropolitan Services is in the process of developing modern public transport facilities as part of decongesting the Nairobi CBD and improving commuter experience. This is a program of the  Nairobi Integrated Urban Development Master Plan (NIUPLAN),” Badi said. 

NMS new termini include the Green Park and others being built at Fig Tree in Ngara, Bunyala and Workshop Road, Muthurwa and Globe Cinema Roundabout. 

The entity has postponed the CBD ban for months, citing slow construction of the above termini.
