    Residents of Mlolongo planning to use the train will have to make early preparations as the train leaves the station at 6:41 a.m and is also scheduled to depart the Embakasi station at 6:59 a.m.

    The train is set to depart Imara Daima station at 7:14 a.m as residents of Makadara will see the train leave the station at 7:28 a.m. 

    Those returning to Athi River from Nairobi will see the train depart the station at 17:50 and will leave the Madaraka station at 18:07.

    The train will then leave the Imara Daima station at 18:21 and depart from the Embakasi station at 18:36 on its journey to Athi River.

    Kenya Railways announced that the train will leave the Mlolongo station at 18:54 and arrive Athi River at around 19:13.

    The changes were effected after a number of complaints about the train leaving the station late after delays with most of them getting to Nairobi late. 

    The Athi River route is the newest on the Nairobi Commuter Train schedule after launching its services on Monday, November 23.

    Previously the train departed the Athi River Station at 6:00 a.m and was scheduled to arrive in Nairobi at 7:23 a.m.

    The new schedule also sees the inclusion of Embakasi on the route.
