THAT, aware that Article 186 (1) of the Constitution of Kenya 2010, and Paragraph 5 of the Fourth Schedule to the Constitution provide for the functions and powers of County Government on County transport including county roads, street lighting, public road transport traffic and parking; further aware that the City has designated preferential parking zones and bus termini throughout the City with parking restrictions for each zone; noting that recent years have witnessed a marked increase in the number of vehicles in the County; concerned that there are limited number of parking slots specially for taxis in the Central Business District making it difficult for motorists to get a slot especially during working hours; further concerned that some of the available parking slots are in a dilapidated state giving motorists option of using private parking services thus denying the County revenue; noting that some areas designated as parking slots have been converted into walkways; further noting that Section 55 of the Nairobi City County Transport Act prohibit taxi cab operators from parking upon any roadway other than within a taxi zone; acknowledging that a good percentage of County revenue is from parking services, this Assembly urges the County Executive to establish and designate more parking slots for taxicabs and picking dropping areas for online taxicabs within the Central Business District and revamp the existing ones in order to ease the pressure on the available spaces, provide efficient parking services to taxicabs and boost revenue collection for the County.
