Kenya Railways will from Monday 4th launch night passenger trains meant to ease the ongoing back to school movement.
A pair of passenger trains will resume their journey on Monday at 9 pm from both ends and expected to end at 3 am as revealed by Kenya Railways themselves.

Those to benefit are not only pupils but also parents and teachers as well who are moving in between Mombasa and Nairobi as other means of transport are currently loaded and overbooked.
Passengers will also be exempted from the current night curfew as revealed by Kenya Railways once they produce their tickets as proof of travel.
They will also be able to connect through the commuter train that will end its journey at the Nairobi Central Business District (CBD) just in time for the end of the curfew hours.
The set of trains will not only operate between the two cities but also make stop over in the other stations across different towns namely Athi River, Emali, Mtito Andei, Voi, Myasenyi and Mariakani.
During the day, the the set of trains will continue with their operations with the Kenya Railways monitoring the situation if the night travel will cover the other days of the week other than Monday and Tuesday.
