Earlier in January, Kenya Railways introduced night passenger train services to facilitate the reopening of schools amid the pandemic.

Passengers were allowed to use the trains past the curfew hours upon proof of ticketing, the Managing Director Philip Mainga said.

“We are running this service because of the boom in passengers from the schools reopening with the aim of supporting parents, teachers and students moving from different locations. Airports and matatus have been overwhelmed,” Mainga told a local publication.
