Good news! More coaches to be added on SGR, demand from travelers is high!

Knowing Kenyans and going to the Coast over the holidays is a must and they go in large numbers. Since the Mombasa–Nairobi Standard Gauge Railway was introduced to Kenyans as a faster, a more safer and convenient for passengers to travel by compared to buses, its demand has increased than expected.

Kenya Railways has announced on their twitter page that from next week, they will add more coaches to the Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) passenger service between Nairobi and Mombasa.

 

It is not a rare act for the railway service to increase coaches during the holiday season. As this continues, it is promoting active tourism and also will generate revenue for the government. A win win on both ends.

This is a very smart move and it will see more people travel and miss out on the train tickets due to its nature of always  being fully booked during peak season.
