In order to guarantee that customers who made advanced reservations to travel on three of its routes do so within their chosen timeframes, Modern Coast Bus Company has now said that it has arranged alternate arrangements.
The fleet’s operating license was revoked by Transport CS Kipchumba Murkomen on December 30, 2022, after one of its buses was involved in a traffic accident that left one person dead and numerous others injured in Kisii County on December 28.
Modern Coast claimed in a statement that the Transport Minister had ordered the suspension of only three of its local routes: Mombasa-Highway (Upcountry), Nairobi-Malindi, and Nairobi-Upcountry and vice versa.
“Following the suspension of our operation license by the Ministry of Road and Transport, the aforementioned routes shall remain closed until advised further,” said the bus company.
“Customers who had booked advanced tickets on the affected routes shall be booked to travel with another bus company to their respective destinations, same date and same time.”
Three of the fleet’s regional routes will continue to be in service, it was stated. Nairobi-Kigali, Nairobi-Kampala, Nairobi-Bujumbura, and vice versa are the routes in question.
“All our offices country wide shall remain open for parcel services and for cross border bookings,” said the bus company.
