The Nairobi Metropolitan Service (NMS) on Friday conducted a  third Green Park Terminus test run  ahead of its official launch.

The move locked out all public service vehicles from the busy Railways stage, with the matatus dropping and picking passengers at the park.

Passengers were forced to trek from the park to the Central Business District, mixed reactions being elicited in the process.

“We are asked to observe social distance in this place, at the same time we are to walk all the way to the CBD, it’s tedious and wastage of time,” decried one of the passengers at the terminus.

 

All public service vehicles plying Ngong route all the way to Kawangware and environs will be required to pick and drop the passengers at the terminus.

It is hoped that the relocation of PSVs from the CBD to Green Park will restore order at the heart of the Kenyan capital while also boosting public health through exercise.

With the move expected to boost the bodaboda business, matatu operators however feel it is a stab in the back.
