NAIROBI, Kenya, Jul 17 – Kenya Railways Corporation (KR) has revised the Nairobi Commuter Train schedule as it seeks to enhance its customer’s experience.

According to the new schedule, the commuter train departs from Nairobi Railway Station at 7:30 am, which will be 30 minutes earlier than it has been previously departing.
The train will then pass by the Makadara station at 7:44 am before making another stop at Imara Daima Station at 7:58 am. It will then proceed to its final stop, and arrive at the Nairobi Terminus at 8.20am.
On the other hand, the city bound commuter train will depart from Syokimau at 6.30am and pass through the Imara Daima station at 6.44am. It will then make another stop at the Makadara Station at 6.58am before it finally arrives at 7.10am at the Nairobi Railway Station.
The Madaraka Express is experiencing high demand, with the train carrying a record breaking 75, 000 passengers carrying an estimated 1, 500 people every day.
