PSVs from Jogoo and Lusaka roads will terminate at the Muthurwa Matatu terminus.

According to the new directive, Matatus plying the Waiyaki Way, Uhuru Highway, Kipande and Limuru roads routes will use the Fig Tree terminus in Ngara.

PSVs from Mt Kenya and Thika Superhighway will stop at the new Desai and Park Road termini.

Matatus using the Mombasa Road route (South B, South C, Industrial Area, Imara Daima, Athi River, Kitengela, Machakos) will use a yet to be constructed terminus at the junction of Bunyala and Workshop Road.
