Public Service Vehicles (PSVs) will be barred from accessing the Nairobi Central Business District (CBD) from Monday December 3, 2018.

Through a notice published in the dailies on Thursday, the county government revoked all previous gazette notices allocating picking and dropping points within the CBD.

“The operators are required to take note that the above changes take effect as from December 3, 2018 and all previous gazette notices/letter allocating any other place as picking and dropping areas within CBD are hereby revoked and become null and void as from December 3, 2018,” the notice by acting County Secretary Pauline Kahiga-Waititu read.
