Nairobi Hourly Parking Fees: Motorists in Kenya’s capital city will soon start paying hourly parking fees. This is according to the Nairobi Metropolitan Service (NMS) which has already started to create a pathway for the automated hourly charges following a directive by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The new system will be a radical shift from the current system in which motorists pay a flat rate of Sh. 200 per day.
NMS Director-General Mohammed Badi said that facilities at Sunken Car Park, the law courts, Desai Road and Machakos Bus Station have already been automated. “We have integrated the automation of Desai Road, Machakos Bus Station, Sunken Car Park and the Nairobi Law Courts Parking into the Nairobi Revenue Service Programme,” said Badi.
Badi added that the Desai and Park roads termini which are under construction will be used by matatus from the Mt Kenya region upon completion in a bid to ease traffic flow into the Nairobi central business district.
Badi further said that the NMS will construct termini and parking areas for public service vehicles on Waiyaki Way, Mombasa Road, Thika Road and Lang’ata Road. In March this year, the Kenya Revenue Authority took over the mandate of collecting all levies and taxes paid to City Hall for a two-year period up to March 16, 2022. Nairobi Hourly Parking Fees.
