All Mombasa Road Matatu Saccos, Routes and Bus Stops

 

Mombasa Road is a prominent road in Nairobi Kenya. It has for the longest time linked the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and Nairobi’s city center.

The Nairobi Expressway is a new road that runs parallel to Mombasa Road, with an epic elevation from NextGen Mall up to Westlands in Nairobi.

Even as the Nairobi expressway largely relieves Mombasa Road of the airport traffic, the latter remains an important road in the south of Kenya’s capital.
