Kenya: Nairobi Transit directions now available on Google Maps

Google, in cooperation with Digital Matatus, has made bus & matatus (minibuses/ minivans used as public transport) routes information for Nairobi available to the public via maps.google.co.ke. This new Transit feature on Google Maps will make it quick and easy for anyone within Nairobi to find the best route for wherever they're planning to go.

The Transit feature on Google Maps is free, and can be accessed either via the web browser, as well as the Google Maps app on both the Android and iOS platforms.
  • click on "Get Directions" button on Google Maps
  • click on the "public transport" icon
  • enter your place of departure and destination
  • Google calculates the quickest route from A to B & suggest the transport that most conveniently suits your time of travel
Digital Matatus has also made various Nairobi Transit Maps available to download. See their website for a pocket map (pdf; below) and a wall map (pdf) as well as GIS data and GTSF data.
