Kenya Railways has introduced a night service on the Nairobi to Kisumu route and dropped the day train.

The train will make the trips every Friday, leaving Nairobi Central station at 1830hrs and arriving in Kisumu at 0630hrs.

The return trip will be every Sunday, with the train departing the New Kisumu Station at 1830hrs and arrive in Nairobi at 0635 hrs.

With a ticket costing KSh2,000 for a ride in the first-class cabins and KSh600 for a ride in the economy class coaches, Kenya Railways aims to make the service a more attractive alternative for travelers between Nairobi City, through the Rift Valley, and finally to the Lakeside region.

“We listened to our customers and the general public and decided to make the change to meet their travel needs. The Kisumu train will now make the journey during the night. We are also introducing more stops during the journey to ensure we cater to more customers along the way. Depending on the demand, we may also reintroduce the day train in due course,” Kenya Railways Managing Director Philip Mainga.

The train will make the trips every Friday, leaving Nairobi Central station at 1830hrs and arriving in Kisumu at 0630hrs.

The return trip will be every Sunday, with the train departing the New Kisumu Station at 1830hrs and arriving in Nairobi at 0635 hrs.
