<p class="">Kenya’s Standard Gauge Railway train will be longer than usual as tourism peek kicks in.</p>

<p class="">Kenya Railways has announced through its Facebook page that it will be adding five additional coaches from August 19th to 22nd, due to high demand for Madaraka Express tickets.</p>

<p class="">The additional coaches will be designated for the Nairobi – Mombasa morning train and the Mombasa – Nairobi afternoon train.</p>

<p class="">The announcement was warmly received by a section of Kenyans.</p>

<p class=""><em>“You’re on the right track! Commendable!”</em> Posted Edwin Buhere.</p>

<p class=""><strong><em>“</em></strong><em>Nice keep up the good job”</em> posted Catherine Mulei in response.</p>

<p class="">Others were, however, less impressed and said the addition was long overdue.</p>

<p class=""><em>“KR should always be aware when schools close the demands is high and automatically adjust. Last week my mum had to use a bus after failing to get a ticket, she couldn’t get a ticket back in time.” </em>Posted Joseph Kariuki.</p>

<p class="">“<em>For how much we begged for the first week of August….. finally someone got some sense…nkt” </em>posted Jayne Mumbi.</p>

<p class="">Madaraka Express is highly popular with commuters since it saves time and cost. A trip from Nairobi to Mombasa uses half the time buses end up using via the road. Costing Sh1000 ($10) for an economy class and Sh3000 ($30) for first class ticket, the prices are far lower than buses which sometimes charge double.</p>

<p class="">August is usually a peak season, which means increased numbers of passengers travelling or flying to various coastal destinations. </p>

<p class="">Last month, regional low-cost carrier, Jambojet announced it would be increasing its frequencies to the <a href="https://www.pulselive.co.ke/bi/strategy/jambojet-reasserts-its-sky-dominance-and-increases-flights-to-mombasa-diani-and/5h3w1sp" id="089898d5-1314-4e1b-869d-7e0d20543841" data-link-role-code="none">Coastal towns of Mombasa, Ukunda (Diani)) and Malindi beginning August.</a></p>

<p class="">The airline will operate 48 weekly flights to Mombasa up from the current 40. Ukunda and Malindi will have three additional weekly flights moving the frequency to twice daily.</p>

<p class="">The additional frequencies will see the airline offer an extra 23% seat capacity to the Coastal destinations. Kisumu, Eldoret and Entebbe will retain at 21, 20 and 10 weekly flights respectively.</p>
