The County Government has streamlined the cashless payment system for boda boda operators to make it more efficient and improve revenue collection.
Boda boda operators across the County will now be to pay for their monthly stickers from the comfort of their operation base.
The stickers will be delivered to the operators through their respective Saccos.
Speaking during a meeting with representatives of boda boda saccos in the County, Receiver of Revenue head Charles Lwanga said the engagement was tailored to improve service delivery and revenue collection.
"We had fruitful discussions with the boda boda riders on the cashless payment and our aim is to make sure all operators across the County are aware of the new system," Lwanga said
He said they will ensure once payment is made it immediately reflect in the County system following complaints of delay by the operators.
The cashless system will reduce conflict between the County enforcement officers and the operators, as the County moves away from forceful enforcement to enforcement through the automated system.
The Sacco officials agreed to compile a data base of all their members to enable the County Government create an orderly and efficient boda boda transport system.
According to Lwanga, the County has been losing 80 to 90 per cent of what it is supposed to be collecting from the operators.
"If 60 per cent of all operators pay for their stickers our revenue will increase from the current Ksh 15million to Ksh 70 million annually," he added.
Nakuru boda boda Safety Association Chairman, Samuel Munyiri said they will sensitize their members on the importance of paying the County levy.
