Relief for Nairobians as Uhuru launches commuter rail system


The project has been touted as a game-changer in the reduction of both vehicular and human traffic jams in the city.

Passengers will save both time and money and at the same time enjoy much-needed comfort on their way to and from the city centre.

The commuter rail is part of the Master Plan of an integrated commuter system within the city and its environs. It also comprises the Bus Rapid Transit, monorail and underground rail.

Kenya Railways Managing Director Phillip Mainga had earlier said daily, on average they move 30,000 to 40,000 passengers through the station.

He noted that everyday Kenya Railways is operating a minimum of three trains in the morning, and another three in the evening, in all these routes.
