Evans Kidero signs deal with Japan to bring commuter trains to Nairobi

You will soon be able to travel fast and safe with and out of the city, thanks to a new deal that was signed last week between Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero and Japanese Yurikamome Mass Transit Automated Guideway Train system.

The new deal will see Nairobi introduce modern commuter trains which will serve over 170,000 commuters every day. The system which is fully automated will run for 16 hours every day and is expected to ease the congestion in the city.

“I am happy to announce that my government and the Japan International Corporation are at a very advanced stage of negotiations to commence construction of the mass transit system in Nairobi County through the Nairobi Metropolitan Transport Authority” Governor Kidero said in a statement.

Kidero has been busy trying to find the perfect system that will work for Nairobi, last year he visited Germany to see how the transport system works there but it seems he wasn't pleased.
