Timetables of major government operated (or commissioned) national-level public transport services (specifically bus and train). The focus here is on national level services (not those which operate only at a municipal or city level and which are not controlled or regulated by the national government). A 'yes' in any question will refer to both types of transport. However, if there is no national level service operated or regulated by the government for a given type of transport (for instance busses), then this type is ignored in this data category. Data submitted in this category should meet the following minimum criteria:

  • Time of operating
  • Time of leaving first station and arriving to the last station
  • Updated at least once a year

Data Location



The Kenyan public transport system is mostly run by the private sector. Some long distance buses will have travel timetables pinned on the wall in their offices or posted on their websites. The Railway is owned by a private company - Rift Valley Railyway. The only government affiliated public transport system is a railway service but this only serves a section of Nairobi (from Syokimau to Nairobi). [Unchanged since 2013]

Reviewer comments

I accidentally accepted a submission from 'Anonymous' that was to be rejected. This is a correction reverting to the 2013-entry which is still valid (situation is unchanged since 2013).
