Written By SOPHIAH MUTHONI KENYA: The Nairobi County Executive for Public Works, Roads and Transport Evans Ondieki has announced that the county will be receiving the first batch of buses under the Bus Rapid Transit ( BRT) system by June this year. The project that is targeting 2000 buses in the city, will first receive 200 buses in a move meant to ease commuting within the county. Speaking to the Press, Ondieki said: “This new system will target local residents who cannot afford the ever fluctuating bus fares. With this new system, payment will be cashless and standard. It is a self-sustaining venture.” He however clarified that the introduction of the buses does not mean any other players in the industry will be side-lined.
