Nairobi City Hall has increased the cost of parking in the CBD after enactment of the Finance Act of 2019. From Wednesday, motorists will pay a minimal parking fee of KSh 400 in the CBD and Kijabe Area.
At the same time, buses will pay KSh 1000 a day. Earlier, parking in the CBD only cost KSh 200.
Nairobi City hall will require motorists who park in Zone II areas to pay KSh 200 for parking. Areas in this zone include Upperhill, Westlands, Highridge, Ngara, Kilimani, Yaya Centre, Kangemi and Embakasi.

On the other hand, motorists who park in other commercial centres apart from the two Zones will pay KSh 100.
A notice from the Director of Parking services in the city requires motorists to top up the parking fee when migrating to zones with higher chargers.
“Kindly note that you will be required to top up the parking fees payment if migrating to a zone of higher charge” reads a letter from Tom Tinega.
Furthermore, City Hall also increased the cost of seasonal parking to KSh 7000 per private vehicle every month. However, motorists will pay less for longer periods, incurring KSh 18,000 for three months and KSh 55,000 annually.
