Motorists now have to pay Ksh140 per day to park their car in the central business district under a new tariff structure aimed at easing congestion in the city centre. The former charge levied by the city council was Ksh70 per day, compared to Ksh100 per hour charged by private parking bays. Those with season tickets will continue to pay the old rates until the passes expire.

The city council has also introduced new higher parking fees for public transport vehicles. Taxis and 14-seater matatus are now required to pay Ksh2,000 (against the former Ksh140), 42-seater buses Ksh3,000 and 62-seater buses Ksh4,000.

Councillors have also resolved to phase out parking attendants and make tickets available from supermarkets and city council kiosks.
