Kenya Railways has announced that it will add five more coaches to the standard gauge railway passenger train that shuttles between Nairobi and Mombasa to cater for the rise in the number of travelers.

The extra coaches that will cater for both economy and first-class passengers will be added starting on Dec. 22.

The train service, dubbed Madaraka Express, is currently fully booked as Kenyans seek convenience, fast and affordable travel.

“With the exception of Dec. 28, the morning train from Mombasa and the afternoon train from Nairobi will feature an additional first-class and four economy class coaches from Dec. 22, to Jan. 3, 2020,” said Kenya Railways in a notice.
