When it comes to Nairobi’s matatus, some saccos stand out from the rest. Here are a few that have received high praise from commuters:
Super Metro (Nairobi-Kikuyu-Juja-Ngong- Kahawa West)
Despite a recent strike by other matatus over Super Metro’s entry into the Nairobi-Kahawa West route, this sacco has earned a reputation as one of the best in the city. Commuters appreciate their reliability and ability to navigate heavy traffic to get passengers to their destination with a highly professional crew.
Orokise Sacco (Nairobi-Bomas to Ongata Rongai)
While other matatus on this route are known for flouting traffic rules and charging arbitrary fares, Orokise Sacco is praised for their orderliness and respect for passengers.
River of God (ROG) (Town-Outering-Buruburu)
This sacco’s conductors are known for their kindness and willingness to help unfamiliar commuters. Commuters also appreciate the neatness of the matatus and the unique music played during rush hour.
Zuri matatus are praised for their cleanliness, disciplined conductors, and soothing music choices. They stand out from the ear-splitting music played on other matatus along the busy Thika Superhighway.
Unlike other matatus on the same route, MSL’s vehicles rarely play any music. Their approach has earned them a loyal following of passengers who value a quieter ride.
Other saccos that received high praise from commuters include Walokana (Town-Kabete-Kitisuru-Westlands-Wangige) and Lopha Travelers (Town-Limuru-Ruiru).
