The new parking payment system in Nairobi is being introduced by Governor Johnson Sakaja.
County Parking Director Tim Tinega said on Wednesday, August 31 that developers were making final adjustments to the platform before making it available to the public.
As of this coming Friday, September 2nd, the system will be live and accepting payments, as previously announced by Tinega.
Thus, the Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) payment platform, which included the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA), would be retired.
Using the USSD code *647#, drivers may get access to the services and pay for parking in predetermined areas inside the city and its surroundings.
Parking fees bring approximately Ksh100 million for the county government. However, once the NRS was introduced in 2020, yearly income decreased to Ksh400 million.
