Super Metro Sacco is the new entrant of Nairobi-Thika-Makongeni route that has been dominated by Kenya Mpya buses though with on and off disciplinary and traffic offences issues.
Super Metro hit the route this morning with promise of reasonable fares as opposed to Kenya Mpya and its two siblings Neo Kenya Mpya and Joy Kenya Mpya.
They announced the new route thus; Good News!!! Good News!! Thika we finally got you sorted. We’ll soon be operating Nairobi-Thika-Makongeni Route 237 at reasonable prices”.
The Thika route has also Chania Travellers and Manchester Travelers Sacco that have not augured so well with commuters.
At peak hours Kenya Mpya charge between Sh70 and Sh80 and presumably Super Metro which operates Nairobi-Kikuyu and Nairobi-Juja will charge Sh60 or Sh70 on Nairobi-Thika and Nairobi-Makongeni routes respectively.
Last year Kenya Mpya introduced Nairobi-Juja route that terminates at High Point area.
Super Metro has lately bonded well with its customers by maintaining customer relations, reasonable charges and interaction on their social media pages. Their entry on Thika route that has mass commuting is expected to not only bring competitive prices but also raise the bar of orderliness.
