The Municipality of Eldoret’s team in charge of transport on Friday visited all the bus parks/stages within the Central Business District of the Town mapping possible relocation,re-organisation, and proper planning of the public transport.

“Our town is growing and we have a challenge with the transport system, we experience traffic jams due to lack of proper coordination, you find a vehicle plying the route to Kisumu having to touch the Uganda Highway on two occasions causing unnecessary traffic while we can re-organize their stage to be along their plying route, similar to those heading to Kitale, Ziwa, Kapsowar, Iten, Kerio Valley routes,” said Ruth Samoei, the Chief Officer Cooperatives and Enterprise.

” For effective planning of our transport sector, we have gone round all their locations, identified areas of weakness and we shall have a stakeholders engagement with Transport sector SACCO leaders to come up with proper planning to enable our business flourish and our City Organised,” said Geoffrey Tanui, who is the Chief Officer Trade, Industrialization and Tourism.

The exercise is aimed at relocating all the bus stages from Uganda Road, all the matatu stages located in petrol stations, and proper planning of Saccos in each stage within the Town.
