KISII, Kenya, January 4, 2021 – Passengers travelling from Kisii town to various parts of the country on Monday, January 24, experienced a crisis with Public Service Vehicle operators hiking the fares as students got back to school.
Most travellers were stuck at the booking stations due to hiked fares, almost double the rates during the Christmas eve when many joined their families upcountry to celebrate.
Besides the spiralling fare rates, there was a shortage of vehicles operating from Kisii, leaving many stranded at the bus stations despite booking in the morning hours.
On Monday, vehicles plying Kisii-Nairobi route were charging KSh2,200 up from KSh1,500. Edward Morara said there are fewer number of vehicles on the road and this does not match the number of travellers leaving the upcountry for towns.
