Commuters traveling from Nairobi to Eldoret can now book their trip on the SWVL bus-booking app, which is now serving Eldoret. The Egypt-based company recently added Eldoret to its list of destinations after Naivasha, Nakuru, and Meru which were added over the Christmas holidays.
It costs 1,200 to travel from Nairobi to Eldoret on SWVL. SWVL announced that Long-distance travel was viable for them, which was why they added locations outside Nairobi to their app. The app’s buses have complied with NTSA rules. Other locations available are Ruai, Ngong, and Kiserian. These were all added to 55 already connected destinations.
Their vehicles now have PSV licenses, yellow lines along with their bodies, and routes displayed for passengers to see. Users book their trips on the app. The app then notifies them of their pick-up points, the fare, and the time of pick up.
Late last year, SWVL was forced to ground all its vehicles due to pressure from the NTSA (National Transport and Safety Authority). The NTSA accused them of using a Tour Service License to offer Public Transport.
