Bus firms hit hard by new train service

Passenger bus companies say they are experiencing low business after the launch of new train services two weeks ago.

Mash Bus Company General Manager Lennox Shalo says morning passenger traffic had reduced, but added that they were trying to cope with the situation.

“At times buses, especially those leaving in the morning, depart with 25 passengers instead of the normal 42. But the evening schedule has not been affected,” he said on Wednesday.

He said they were planning to launch services in new routes.

The reduction in the morning schedules is more than 50 per cent and the bus companies are expected to be hit harder when Kenya Railways launches two more trains between Mombasa and Nairobi.

10,000 passengers

Over the past 12 days, Madaraka Express has transported at least 10,000 passengers both ways.
