Kenya Transport

Transport in Kenya has a long way to go before it can be said to be upto standard. Public transport can be a nightmare. The current Narc Government has put very tough measures on public transport and it is hoped this industry wil now be streamlined.

The most popular form of public transport is the so called 'matatus'. A little while ago, they used to park passengers like sacks and overloading was the norm. The Narc government has now banned standing passangers on any public vehicle including the city commuter buses.

It is also mandatory to fit seat belts on all seats in the vehicles including buses. For long distance journeys, buses are the most used mode of transport. Kenya has several bus companies. Most companies are run by individuals who own entire fleets. A few are limited companies with several directors. In Nairobi, Bustrack is the main bus company and serves most of the estates within and around the city.


Kenya Railways operates daily train services between Nairobi and Mombasa. Recently passanger train service was introduced to Kisumu. Many Nairobi City dwellers also use trains to get to work. The train passes a number of Estates every morning and many Nairobians especially the low income earners find this a very ideal mode of transport because of the low fares compared to the buses or the small passanger transport Mini buses/Urvans also known as 'Matatus'.

Regional train service is also available between Nairobi and Kampala as well as Nairobi and Arusha. For bookings, please consult your tour operator.
