Leading public service vehicle company Super Metro is expanding its route network with Kahawa West entry in Nairobi.
The Sacco said in a statement that it has acquired a 100-bus fleet that will be distributed on all of its routes.
“Today we officially commenced our services in Kahawa West,” it said earlier.
“Our main aim is to serve our esteemed clients better,” it added.
Super Metro has become a popular PSV for passengers in Nairobi for its strict observance of traffic rules and regulations in an industry that is dominated by unruliness.
Only in February did the transportation firm unveil its first fleet of electric buses as the company transitioned to eco-friendly vehicles.
The Sacco’s electric vehicles ply the Central Business District (CBD)-Kitengela, CBD-Kikuyu, and CBD-Ngong routes.
The electric vehicles were acquired by Sacco in a partnership with BasiGo, an electronic bus company that seeks to provide environmentally friendly transport solutions on the African continent.
The model acquired by Super Metro is a K6, a 25-seat electric bus with a 250-kilometer range and less than four hours of recharge time.
However Super Metro Chairman Mr. Nelson Nduki noted that there is resistance from other Saccos who have hired goons to disrupt operations by stoning their buses despite having been licensed by Ntsa.
