Motorists who park their cars at the Central Business District and Kijabe Street in Nairobi are in for a rude shock.

Starting December 4, 2019, the motorists will have to part with Sh400 for parking, representing 100 percent hike.

CBD and Kijabe are categorised as Zone I in the Nairobi County’s Finance Act 2019.

Motorists who park their cars in Zone II will not be affected by the price hike, parting with only Sh200.

Zone II includes: Westlands, Upperhill, Community, Ngara, Kilimani, Highridge, Yaya Centre, Allsops, Mwiki, Dagoretti, Kangemi, South B, C, Kawangware, Lang’ata, Madaraka, Makadara, Buruburu, Umoja, Kayole, Muthaiga, Milimani, Donholm, Hurlingham, Lavington, Karen and Eastleigh.

Those who park in commercial zones not in Zone I and II will pay Sh100 per day. The rates for buses (non-matatu) will be Sh1,000 per day.

The directive showing the new rates was signed by the head of City Hall parking services, Tom Tinega.
