Green Park bus terminus launch postponed

Date:

Nairobi Metropolitan Services has postponed the launch of the Green Park Bus Terminal whose operation was to start on Tuesday, May 24.

The postponement follows a request for a time extension by PSV operators.

NMS further said the new date for launch will be duly communicated.

“NMS wishes to notify the public that the operationalization of the Green Park Bus Terminal that was set to commence on 24th May 2022 has been postponed following a request for a time extension by PSV operators,” NMS said in a tweet.

Public Service Vehicle operators on Friday said they had not consulted over the launch.

The operators spoke during a consultative workshop at a hotel in Nairobi.

“This [decongestion plan] will be the last nail in the coffin for some PSVs [because] vehicles belong to individual investors,” Matatu Welfare chairman Dickson Mbugua said.

“Under the plan, some vehicles will not be in business as some Saccos will cease operating.”

Mbugua, who is also the Federation of Public Transport Sector secretary, said there is a need for proper modality on how the green park will operate. 

NMS had announced that PSVs plying Ngong’ road and Argwings Kodhek road will pick and drop passengers at the Green Park terminal from Tuesday.
