The Nairobi Metropolitan Services is set to carry another test run at the Green Park Bus Terminus tomorrow, Friday.
It will be the second of such an exercise, coming one month after its first one.
NMS is looking at commissioning the terminus soon, for drop-offs and pick-ups of passengers.
Last month, NMS carried out a similar test run to assess the possibility of implementing the gradual removal of matatus from the Central Business District (CBD) to the new terminal.
NMS Director-General Mohamed Badi said the exercise was necessary to assess the level of preparedness ahead of commissioning of the facility.
The terminus will serve PSVs plying the Ngong and Lang’ata Road routes, which currently operate from the Nairobi Railway Station.
Matatus also plying the Kawangware, Kikuyu, Kibera, Rongai and Kiserian will terminate at the Green Park bus terminus.
In April, NMS said commuters will use the Non-Motorised Transport Corridors (NMT) which have both cycleways and walkways to and from the CBD.
The Mohamed Badi-led body will also be charging a token fee on traders selling their merchandise at the terminal, or using advertisement space.
NMS Transport Director Michael Ochieng said the money will go into maintaining the Sh200 million bus terminus.
