It will be he drop-off and pick-up points for about 140 matatus plying the Ngong and Lang’ata routes.

The terminus will have a small dispensary, a modern restaurant, mini-supermarket, police station and user-friendly ablution blocks at drop-off and pick-up points. It will use solar power.

The dispensary has been operating since January. About 3,000 people use the terminus daily but that number will increase greatly.

Green Park—named for its greenery—is the first terminus constructed by the Nairobi Metropolitan Services since it took charge of key city functions in March last year.
