Kenya Railways suspends 4 train services for 10 days.

The Kenya Railways Corporation announced on Wednesday 23 December 2020 the suspension of four Nairobi commuter train services.


The company has revealed that it is curtailing its activities during the holiday season, with most Nairobi residents travelling to the hinterlands and various holiday destinations.


Kenya Railways has published a notice announcing the suspension of four rail services on the Nairobi commuter train for 10 days.


This will see the commuter rail services which operating to Embakasi, Syokimau, Ruiru and Kikuyu be suspended from December 24, 2020, until January 3rd, next year.


“We wish to notify our commuters that: The Nairobi Commuter Rail Services to Ruiru, Embakasi, Kikuyu and Syokiamu will be suspended from December 24th, 2020 till 3rd January 2021,” read the statement in part.


The company has assured customers that Nairobi’s commuter train express service to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) will not be affected.


The Madaraka Express passenger service and commuter train to and from Nairobi’s SGR terminus will also operate as usual.


The corporation announced that for the Christmas and New Year’s period, the train will run on December 24, 2020, to Nanyuki and return to Nairobi on December 27, 2020.


The Nanyuki train service has come as a relief to most travelers as the Kshs 200 price is substantially less than what matatus charge for the same destination.


Train service was suspended in 2005 but resumed operations on Friday, December 11, 2020, making a weekly round trip departing on Friday and returning Sunday.
