The service launched on Monday morning will see Air travellers pay Sh500 to use diesel trains from the Nairobi Railway Station to JKIA.

The trip will take about 20 minutes.

Alternatively, a cheaper option of Sh140 but a longer route will see passengers connect from the Nairobi Railway Station to Embakasi Village Station and finally take the Bus Rapid Transit vehicles through the Airport South Road which has been dedicated to the Nairobi Commuter Rail Bus.
