Nairobi City residents earlier today were forced to walk long distances as the Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) doing a test run for the New Green Park PSV terminus.The Green Park Terminus is located at the former Lunar park area which is quite some distance from the usual Railway bus terminus where matatus using Ngong Road drop off their passengers.

Due to the operation going on, Matatus from Ngong Road and Lang’ata area were requested to use the terminus, meaning passengers had to walk from the terminus to different destinations in town.Ngong Road serves passengers from Ngong, Kibera, Rongai, and Dagoretti.

Weighing in on the new terminus, a section of passengers noted that it will make life harder for them since they have to pay extra cash to get to town from the terminus.The terminus is part of the NMS’ plan to de-congest the city by reducing the number of Public Service vehicles accessing the Cental Business District.

The terminus is expected to be officially launched in the next month. NMS organized the test operations to help improve areas that may cause concern once the project is officially launched.After Green Park, NMS is expected to move to other parts of the city and establish similar projects in its Nairobi CBD decongestion plan.
