No, SGR train trips have not been reduced
The firm operating the SGR trains, China Bridge and Roads Corporation (CBRC) have called out a tweep for spreading false news.
The tweep had indicated that Nairobi to Mombasa trips had been reduced from daily to once a week.
CBRC through its official handle clarified that its trips to and from both cities are still running on a daily basis.
The tweep had further stated that the corporation had made a loss of Sh100 million hence the decision to significantly reduce trips.

The SGR trains do two trips with both starting at 9am in Mombasa and Nairobi termini respectively.
The trains, operational since July, have according to Kenya Railways transported at least 273,000 passengers so far.
A mobile USSD code was recently launched to make it easier for passengers to access tickets.
