Kenya’s Mombasa-Nairobi Standard Gauge Railway resumes passenger service
Kenya’s Mombasa-Nairobi Standard Gauge Railway has officially resumed its passenger service operations on Oct. 20, after suspension for about half a year to curb the pandemic. It indicates full service of the line has been resumed. To ensure smooth resumption, Afristar, which is owned by our subsidiary CRBC and operates the SGR, has made full preparations such as continuing strict prevention measures and adjusting the operating schedule.
The SGR maintained its cargo service over the past few months. It transported much-needed medical supplies and necessities during these trying times, playing a significant role in the country’s containment of the virus. The resumption of the passenger service will help facilitate residents’ travel along the line, reduce the infection risk in highway transportation and contribute to Kenya’s economic recovery.
