Naipolitans: The Day We Catch the Train, Jul. 12 2013, @ Nairobi Railways Museum & Station

This month, Naipolitans forum will be about experiencing firsthand one of Nairobi’s newer urban developments – the Nairobi-Syokimau commuter rail service.

Date: Friday July 12, 2013
Time: 3.30-7.30 pm
RSVP: naipolitans@gmail.com

Schedule
3.30-5 pm: Visit Nairobi Railway Museum
5.30-7.30 pm: Ride the Nairobi-Syokimau train

Launched in November 2012, the Kenya Railways Corporation is extremely proud of this “jam rescue” service as it saves commuters hours sitting in the traffic along the infamous Mombasa Road, especially during rush hour. In Nairobi, where traffic is the stuff war stories are made of, a two-hour plus commute has been reduced to a comfortable 30 mins.

Not only does public transportation benefit the people who use it, it also benefits society as a whole by fostering more livable communities. It encourages economic and social activities and helps create strong neighbourhood centres that are economically stable, safe, and productive. When commuters ride public transportation or walk, contact with neighbours tends to increase, ultimately helping to bring a community together.

Come join in the experience of riding the first of many projects aimed at improving the city’s public transportation system, and by extension, Nairobi’s communities.

Restricted by the train schedule, the evening activity will be structured as follows:

4:00-5:00pm – Meet at the Nairobi Railway Museum and learn about the railway that was the catalyst to the evolution of Nairobi City.

5:30pm – Meet at the Nairobi Railway Station to buy return tickets (130/=) and prepare for trip. Look out for the group on the train platform with a Naipolitans sign. Call Sheila (0726-177767) or Njeri (0737-791113) if you cannot find the group.

5:50-6:20pm – Train ride to Syokimau

6:45-7:15pm – Train ride back to Nairobi

7:15-7:30pm – Conclusion of forum

As participation is voluntary, please note that you are taking part at your own risk. Naipolitans cannot take responsibility should there be any mishaps during the trip.
