Matatus will not be allowed to access the city centre from November as the Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) Director-General Mohammed Badi moves to decongest the city.
Badi announced the looming kick out when he appeared before the National Assembly Committee on Administration and National Security.
According to him, the plans are being finalised and will be launched by President Uhuru Kenyatta in November.
He added that they have already set a terminal in Ngara and another in Parklands where all commuters coming into the central business district (CBD) via Thika Road will alight.
Matatus coming through Machakos and Lang’ata roads will be expected to terminate their journeys at a terminal to be built at Railway Golf land off Uhuru Highway.
For matatus currently accessing the CBD through Haile Selassie Way, they will have to drop commuters at the Muthurwa terminal.
There is also expected to be an express way starting near Kenya Planters Cooperative Union building and terminate at Jogoo Road.
Besides the termini, the NMS is also working with Kenya Railways to ensure that all their lines are operational to reduce pressure on roads.
Should Mr Badi’s plans pan out, he will have succeeded in the chartered path where both Evans Kidero and his predecessor Sonko have failed.
