Abiria eases the matatus experience by providing a platform of making the payments.

Matatu riding in Kenya is not an easy task. It is among the worst experiences in Nairobi. Or else a most unique experience in the city. Having to look out for the exact matatus to board with is really difficult. An official bus stop that is well known is rare to find. Most of the times you are required to flag a driver down the moment you see the one you need. The location of where the matatus is headed is listed on the side of the matatus. However; dirt on the side of the matatus makes it hard to find the route number. IF not careful, you might board a Matatu that is not headed to your preferred destination.

This should not be the case anymore. Paying your fare in a matatus should no longer be a hustle as well. provides you an opportunity to securely pay your fare in a laid back procedure. You are only needed to find your Matatu and pay your fare within no time. It’s such a hustle free experience. An observation was made on the matatus. It was found out that there were too many cars on the streets. This caused a lot of time wastage as well as space and money. This is why Abiria focused on this project.

You are only required to follow these simple steps:

  • Look for a ride. Insert the license plate number of the matatus you are in.
  • The opportunity to pay your fare comes in.Pick a route, the number of people that will use it.Enter your pin after you have done all these.
  • A confirmation receipt is sent to you. There will also be a sms to show the conductor for verification. This will avoid the conductor doubting the payment made.

With the simple procedure provided by Abiria, you are sorted to travel to your destination. Abiria is here for all the matatus passengers. Key in your route and Abiria will sort you with the rest.
