Nairobi County declares all PSV terminus free for use

In Summary

  • The announcement follows reports indicating that some Sacco Members were developing a misplaced sense of entitlement using sections of the terminus for their exclusive use at the expense of other Sacco members.
  • The county government was however keen to note that  the monthly Matatu seasonal parking ticket fee will remain for Saccos operating within the routes captured in Gazette Notice 4479 of 2017.
  • The move comes after a gazette notice published last year by the county government that restricted Public Service Vehicles (PSVs) entry into the Central Business District (CBD).

The Nairobi County government has announced that all gazetted Public Service Vehicle (PSV) terminus are free for use by any matatu sacco.

In a circular released on Tuesday, the county government further clarified that there will no longer be need to get a letter of approval from City Hall for any sacco member to access the use of the terminus.

“This is to inform all registered Matatu Saccos and the General Public in Nairobi that there will no longer be need to get a letter of approval from City Hall for any Sacco Member to access the use of our gazetted PSV terminus,” reads the circular signed by Richard Kavemba, the city’s Chief Officer of Transport and Public Works.

The announcement, according to the statement, follows reports indicating that some sacco members are developing a misplaced sense of entitlement using sections of the terminus for their exclusive use at the expense of other sacco members.

“I wish to communicate that any other letter or approvals previously issued to any Sacco should forthwith be regarded as null and void as it is no longer a requirement,” read the notice.

The county government was however keen to note that the monthly matatu seasonal parking ticket fee will remain for saccos operating within the routes captured in Gazette Notice 4479 of 2017.

“It’s important for all stakeholders to note that our gazetted Matatu terminus are strictly to be used as drop off and pick up points and not as holding grounds for PSV Vehicles,” added the notice.

The move comes after a gazette notice published last year by the county government that restricted Public Service Vehicles (PSVs) entry into the Central Business District (CBD).
