Nairobi Metropolitan Services To Launch New Technology Restricting Matatus From Accessing CBD


Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) is expected to launch a mobile app designed to limit the movement of matatus in the Central Business District (CBD).

The mobile app will only allow a limited number of matatus to access the CBD in an attempt to minimize traffic at various pick-up points.

NMS Transport Chief, Engineer Michael Ochieng, announced that the app will come out once the Green Park Terminus has been completed.

“The electronic system we are going to install here (Green Park Terminus) will inform matatu operators when to send their vehicles to town and when their slot is ready.

“They will know it from an app on their phone, that from their route, only five or six vehicles should come into town. So it will be regulated,” stated the Engineer.

NMS has announced that the park is scheduled to be opened on Monday, December 14, with all the matatus, except for a few approved by the app that will end their trip to the terminus.
