NMS to launch hourly parking fees for city operators

City operators will soon start enjoying the benefits of the newly created NMS, where they will pay for hourly parking fees.

Presently, motorists parking at the City center has to part with Ksh 200 daily. The Nairobi Metropolitan Service plans to introduce an hourly parking fee as directed by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Following the command, Mohammed Badi, NMS director-general said buildings at Machakos Bus Station, Desai Road, Law Courts, and Sunken Car Park already started the automation process.

“We have merged the Nairobi Law Courts, Machakos Bus Station, and Desai Road into the Nairobi Revenue Service Program,” stated Mr. Badi.

Ease traffic

Mr. Badi said Matatus from Mount Kenya region would use the Desai and Park roads termini, which is under construction and almost complete.

He added that the move would ease traffic congestion within Nairobi as transport stakeholders, city officials, and members of the National and Transport Safety Authority (NTSA) had discussed the matter.

Also, the NMS will construct parking places and termini for public vehicles operating along Waiyaki Way, Lang’ata Road, Thika Road, and Mombasa Road.

Efficiency

To cushion motorists from the increased parking fees, MCAs called on the government’s last year to introduce hourly parking fees.

Nominated member of the county assembly Mbugua Kabiro said the introduction of an hourly fee would stop straining businesses located at the city center.

He further said an hourly fee would also help people who came to town shorty save some money.

The MCA for Roysambu Peter Warutere said parking areas at the specific area would enhance revenue collection for the Capital city.
