Governor Mike Sonko admits that the reduced prices will increase congestion within the city but a statement from Transport CS James Macharia indicate that through the planned BRT bus services, congestion will be very low.

In 2017 Nairobi County through the city hall rolled out a cashless payment system that saw motorist pay via Mpesa service.

The new service was to reduce theft cases as collections will automatically be received at one point in a secure manner.
