New Bus Terminus At Uhuru Park Is Too Far From Nairobi CBD-Commuters

According to the directives from NMS, PSV including the popular matatus will not be able to access any stages in the CBD from today, April 1st 2022, instead they will be diverted to the new termini at Uhuru Park, Globe Cinema and Muthurwa to avoid congestion

A fresh storm is brewing in Nairobi that could see Public Service Vehicles (PSVs) operations ground to a halt following plans by the Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) to block operators from accessing the CBD.

According to the directives from NMS, PSV including the popular matatus will not be able to access any stages in the CBD from today, April 1st 2022, instead they will be diverted to the new termini at Uhuru Park, Globe Cinema and Muthurwa to avoid congestion and ease rampant traffic jam.

Such plans backfired badly in the past with matatus staging strikes that forced the authorities to rescind directives as it was the commuter, including school children who suffer the most. At Muthurwa established in 2011, many Eastlands bound matatus boycotted a busy terminus that overlies the bustling Marigiti market.

Massive renovations at Uhuru Park have created a modern bus terminus that many will find orderly but it is too far from the town Centre and commuters will be forced to walk to the CBD or use motorbikes riders if the latter is not also banned.
