Kenya Railways revises Nairobi commuter train schedule

NAIROBI, Kenya, Jul 15 – The schedule for the Nairobi Commuter Train has been revised in a move to enhance customers’ travelling experience.

The schedule, released by Kenya Railways Corporation, will see the commuter train depart from Nairobi Railway Station at 7:30 am, which will be 30 minutes earlier than it has been previously departing.

The train will then pass by the Makadara station at 7:44am before making another stop at Imara Daima Station at 7:58am. It will then proceed to its final stop, and arrive at the Nairobi Terminus at 8.20am.

“The city bound commuter train will depart from Syokimau at 6.30am and pass through the Imara Daima station at 6.44am. It will then make another stop at the Makadara Station at 6.58am, before it finally arrives at 7.10am at the Nairobi Railway Station,” reads the official statement.

Kenya Railways Managing Director Atanas Maina says the move will ensure passengers using the commuter link to the SGR Nairobi Terminus have ample time to prepare to board the Madaraka Express train before departure time. It is also expected to increase the efficiency of public transportation and contribute further to the growth of the sector and economy at large.

The move by KRC is an effort put to match the high demand for the Madaraka Express.

In the first month of operations, KRC reported that the train carried a record breaking 75,000 passengers. It is also estimated to be carrying at least 1,500 people every day.
