Private firm to receive 12-year concession to run BRT buses

A private firm will be granted a 12-year concession to run bus rapid transport buses,(BRT) on Thika and Mombasa roads, to ease traffic in Nairobi.

According to Nairobi Metropolitan Area Transport Authority acting director-general Francis Gitau, the firm will run 300 BRT buses from next February.

The BRT system is one of the features in the planned 50 billion Sh, first double-decker road, which will involve building a dedicated lane for large-capacity buses, to ease traffic congestion.

The buses will also be deployed on the already-marked Thika Road and other highways in the city.
