    In a joint statement on Monday, May 3, the KRC announced that it was resuming its evening trek to Syokimau, Kikuyu, Ruiru, Athi River and Embakasi stations.

    The new schedule shows that the train to Syokimau is scheduled to depart at 5:30 pm and 6:20 pm while the one heading to Kikuyu station will depart at 5:35 pm.

    Other routes are: Ruiru Station at 5:40 pm; to the Athi River station at 5:50 pm; to Embakasi Village station at 6:00 pm, 6:30 pm, and 8:00 pm.

    Passengers travel to Mombasa by Madaraka Express train at Nairobi’s Syokimau stations.


    “Tonight we continue with regular service at the Nairobi Passenger Rail Service… The Link Train to Nairobi Terminus leaves at 8:00 pm,” the statement said in part.

    The agency had adjusted travel hours around Nairobi on March 26 after President Uhuru Kenyatta set up five counties, including the capital.

    Many travel hours were pushed to leave early in the morning when Standard Gauge Railway operations were suspended for a month.

    Passenger trains traveling through the Nairobi Terminus to Ngong station had been adjusted to ensure that passengers disembark at the station at 7pm to ban the deadline at 8pm.

    After President Uhuru Kenyatta lifted a moratorium on the movement in Nairobi, Machakos, Kajiado, Kiambu and Nakuru Counties during Labor Day celebrations on Saturday, the KRC resumed SGR services between Nairobi and Mombasa.

    A statement issued on Sunday, May 2 by the agency indicated that the SGR online platform was opened to the public for ticket purchases.

    The KRC also confirmed that it had waived the relocation fee for travelers whose reservations were canceled due to the ban being announced on March 26.

    Uhuru also adjusted the curfew from 8pm to 4am to 10pm to 4am. He noted that the new directives were based on self-promotion for Covid-19 in the past month.
