These rates in Nairobi have had some of the cheapest fare rates even at this Covid-19 pandemic period.
Vehicles to Huruma rarely charge more than 50 shillings. Unless it is during bpeak hour on a rainy day in which the highest they usually go is 70-80. During these times, other Sacco's charger at least 100 Bob back to the estate.
Githurai has so many vehicles and some of the largest matatus in Nairobi. Unless, you can prove me wrong, I've never seen a Githurai Vehicle charge more that 50 shillings. Maybe this Covid-19 pandemic has brought about some significant change, but I don't think it's that much.

Vehicles to Lunga Lunga are doubtlessly some of the oldest matatus in town. They are also some of the cheapest in the business, rarely go beyond 50 Bob long traffic and 30 Bob against traffic.
Mathare too has some of the cheapest fare rates, especially area A. Usually settles between 50-70 during peak hours. Not bad, especially with the 1/3 capacity rule.
Not too cheap, but relatively cheap as compared to Pipeline, Dandora, Kayole, Babadogo and other estates in the Eastlands. Kariobangi Matatus are much cheaper than Eastleigh which is very much closer to town.
Which estate do you currently reside in and what are your fare charges. Some of us will really need to move to affordable estates.
