Mid this year, the Nairobi Metropolitan Transport Authority announced that the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) vehicles will arrive in Kenya by December this year. Prior to this announcement, there had been renovations along Thika Super Highway to accommodate the new government owned public transport buses. BRT stations are currently under construction and taking good shape along Thika Road.

Though these constructions began long after the roads had been marked to define BRT lanes, the progress so far is promising and could see Kenyans enjoy BRT services from as early as January 2022. BRT electric buses will facilitate fast and affordable transport within Nairobi. It's is also part of the many development projects, especially in the transport sector being carried out by the government.

After Thika Road, the BRT will be expected to expand to other major roads in the city and to all other major cities in Kenya. Hopefully by 2030, all Kenya's big cities will be enjoying BRT services.
