Relief for commuters as MOA reduces fares

20 February 2015, 09:13

Nairobi - Commuters will from Thursday be relieved of the high fare charges that have characterized the transport sector in the past.

This relief was announced Thursday by the Matatu Owners Association (MOA) officials during a press conference at the association’s headquarters in Nairobi.

“Following the continued drop in fuel prices, we are now obliged to pass the same benefits to our consumers,” a press statement released by the association read in part.

MOA Chairperson, Simon Kimutai noted that the reduction in fuel prices in the last three months played an instrumental role in making the decision and called on the Energy Regulatory Authority (ERC) to continue maintaining the current trend in order for Kenyans to be cushioned.

Consumers and lobby groups were already getting agitated prior to the reductions, following the drop in fuel prices from KES 102 in December last year to KES 84 in February.

In the new rates, routes such as Nairobi-Nyeri and Nairobi-Mombasa among others have registered over 20% reduction in fare charges with matatus plying the Nairobi-Nyeri route charging KES 200 down from KES 300 while those plying the Nairobi-Mombasa route are charging KES 1 100 down from KES 1 500.

However, the new rates are yet to be effected in Nairobi and its environs.
