Second Disruption: City Hoppa Buses Protest Super Metro’s Pick-Up Stage Takeover


On March 10th, City Hoppa buses caused traffic chaos in Nairobi’s Central Business District (CBD), including Moi Avenue, blocking major roads and disrupting the routes used by their competitor, Super Metro buses.

This was the second time that City Hoppa buses had caused such chaos, as they and other operators protested against Super Metro’s takeover of pick-up stages.

As a result, many commuters were forced to find alternative means of transport during rush hour.

Unfortunately, the disruption caused an increase in muggings by young men on the streets, causing concern among motorists and passengers.

In response, Kenyans were urged to be cautious when approaching the streets to avoid being ambushed.

However, an official from Super Metro denied that the company had taken over pick-up points that belonged to other fleets and explained that the two rival companies were unhappy with Super Metro’s expansion into routes that were predominantly theirs.

Super Metro has been expanding since it began operations in 2013 and introduced long-distance travel buses to Western Kenya in December 2022, gaining popularity among Kenyans who appreciate its professionalism.
