Hello good people. Does anyone know if there are buses from Mombasa CBD to SGR Miritini station? and possibly where one can board them?
Thanks in Advance.
Pretty sure you can pick up a Matatu from Town.
Being a Backpacker, you should have no problem riding one.
Thanks Stefano. Yes, I don't mind Matatus. Was wondering if there is a specific point to pick them but I will look around.
Is this a personal question or is it another question you've 'been asked' on your website? 😎
Kenya Railways introduced a courtesy bus service from the old railway station in Mombasa to the SGR station when the service started back in June but I think it was only an introductory service for the first week of operation.
There are 'agencies' in Mtwapa and Shanzu that, for a small fee, will book your ticket for you and also take you to the station, in a bus from Mtwapa or a 'people carrier' from Shanzu. I don't know if anybody offers this service from CBD. I doubt anyone would offer it as a scheduled service as the traffic mayhem between town and the station and airport over the last few months would make it impossible to run to a timetable. Many people have missed the train by being stuck in traffic
I had a look at your site. If you do get the answer you needed here, it would be courteous of you to credit the TA member who advised you.
I haven't had information on the bus services from Mombasa and since I will not have much time from Mtwapa on the return date, that is why I am seeking prior advice. But yes, I would also share the advice on the FAQ page on my blog to help others and give credits to the person.
Hi Philip, Of course, i will do that.
How do you get from Mombassa terminus to mombassa CBD? Is Uber or taxi the only way?
I've no personal experience of the SGR but according to the Kenya Railways website :-
"In Mombasa, boarding is at the Mombasa Terminus in Miritini; customers are picked up at the old Mombasa Railways station and transported to the Terminus by buses. The same buses will transport customers on arrival from the Mombasa Terminus to Mombasa CBD. The cost is Ksh. 100"
