In a statement issued on Sunday, management said the services would resume tomorrow, May 3, after about a month of suspension due to the termination of a protest order issued by President Uhuru Kenyatta affecting Nairobi, Machakos, Kajiado Kiambu and Nakuru counties.

A travel ban imposed to control the spread of Covid-19 led to the rescheduling of the passenger train service between Nairobi Terminus and Suswa for only weekends.

While announcing the resumption of regular services, KR said the schedule remains unchanged with Inter County train departing at 8:00 p.m.; Express train departing at 3:00 pm, and Night Train departing at 10:00 pm.

Seating platforms have been opened to the public for online ticket purchases.

“For tickets that have not been used, due to the cancellation of the completed Movement Order, customers are advised to reschedule the trip to a preferred date,” the statement said.

In addition, KR said it has waived the fee for rescheduling tickets purchased before May 2, 2021.

Link train to Nairobi Terminus at 6:35 p.m. 12:00 pm; and at 8:00 pm will be available to transport passengers to Nairobi Terminus and upon arrival from Mombasa.

“Customers should visit the Power Passenger Service Center at least 48 hours before the intended date and hour of travel and rearrangement on the seat access tin,” management added.

President Kenyatta called for an end to the protests during Labor Day celebrations on Saturday, May 1.

The Head of State also reviewed the curfew hours from 8 pm-4 am to 10 pm-4 am.
