The other train will leave Mombasa for Nairobi at 2.15pm and is expected to arrive in Nairobi at 7.20pm.

The introduction of the additional train can be attributed to an increase in the demand by Kenyans to travel.

Madaraka Express passenger services resumed in July following the removal of travel restrictions between Nairobi and Mombasa.
