New Parking Fee Effective Today
Motorists parking their vehicles within the Central Business District will have to pay Ksh 300, up from Ksh 140.
Those parking in the outskirts and city estates will also have to start paying Ksh 200.
The new parking rates which had been contested in court took effect today.
This was after the planned appeal by Public Service Vehicles against the hiking of the fees failed to materialize.
According to the PSV operators, the Nairobi Finance Act, under which the increase was effected, was unconstitutional.
The appeal to the high court did not however go through.

Except within CBD, saloon cars parked in Westlands, Ngara, Highridge, Upper Hill, Community,Industrial Area, Gigiri, Lavington and Karen will also pay Ksh. 300.
Buruburu Shopping Centre, Pangani, Muthaiga, Eastleigh, Ngong Road, Kombo Munyiri, New Pumwani Road, Langata Road, Kariokor and Ziwani shopping centre will attract a parking fee of Ksh.200 as these are the areas considered outside the CBD.
Parking in non-automated areas within the CBD will go up from Sh200 to Sh400 while automated parking will attract a charge of Sh50 per hour.
