Nairobi's matatu system differs from that of the rest of the country. Matatus and buses for public transportation, popularly known as "Nganya," have undergone significant changes. The Matatus are noisy, and they use inventive graffiti and transformations to get their message across. Most city dwellers use them as a mode of transportation since they are convenient.
