Parking charges for loading zones increased

The Nairobi County on Thursday increased parking charges for loading zones in the city by 66 per cent with effect from next year.

“We have changed the the charges for the loading zone per bay per year from Ksh.120, 000 to Ksh.200,000. So you can renew for 2014,” read the tweet from the city government.

The move comes at a time when the governor’s move to increase daily parking fees to Sh300 from Sh150 is still awaiting court orders.

Payments for seasonal tickets for private vehicles have also been moved from City Hall to Huduma Centre at Teleposta Towers.

“We are only offering one Month seasonal tickets: Saloon Cars sh.2000, Matatus sh.2200, Minibus-sh.3000, Lorries and buses sh.4000, Canter-sh.3000,” read their tweet.

“Private vehicles ought to acquire seasonal ticket at the Huduma centre and not at City Hall,” it added.

“We shall also not be receiving payments for seasonal tickets by individual matatu owners as they ought to pay as a Sacco.”
