THAT, aware that under the Article 186 (1) and Part Two of the Fourth Schedule to the Constitution of Kenya 2010, the functions and powers of the County Governments, among others, covers 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 public service vehicles plying various routes in the County; concerned that most streets, pedestrian walkways and onstreet parkings in the City Centre have been illegally turned into bus stops and parking slots for public service vehicles, which has led to increased congestion and accidents including deaths to pedestrians, further noting that the allocation of parking, picking and dropping zones for public service vehicles was last done in the year 2000, this Assembly urges the Nairobi Metropolitanservices to abolish all onstreet parkings by the public service vehicles and “boda bodas” within the Central Business District and direct them to revert back to the designated bus termini and develop comprehensive policy on allocation of parking, picking and dropping zones for public service vehicles and bus termini in the County.
