Nairobi introduces new parking payment scheme

29 January 2014, 10:31

Nairobi - Nairobi County government has announced that it will be introducing a pay-per-hour parking system within the central business district in March.

County Minister for Transport, Roads, Infrastructure and Public Works, Evans Ondieki, said the move was going to deter people who parked the vehicles for long hours within the CBD.

“If you park for one hour, you are not going to pay more than thirty shillings because you only park for the time you need. But for people who park from early hours of the morning until midnight, they are going to pay more,” said Ondieki.

The move by the county government has been heralded as better than the current parking charges which are a fixed fee within the CBD irrespective of the length of time one has parked.

The new pay-per-hour system is among the new initiatives by the county’s Ministry of Transport, Roads, Infrastructure and Public Works.

This system comes just a day after the ministry launched a transport committee charged with working out modalities to decongest the city which congestion and parking fees have been a big problem.

In 2013, the county government tried to increase parking fees by more than 100 percent. The move to increase the charges from KES 140 to KES 300 attracted a protracted court battle.
