Public Service Vehicles operators will begin carrying full capacity starting Monday August 9.

Addressing the press on Friday, Transport Chief Administrative Secretary Chris Obure said the matatu Saccos will have to self-regulate inline with Covid-19 protocols.

“The Ministry of Transport and Sacco operators will sign an MoU in the next three days to ensure protocols are observed,” Obure said.

In March last year, government ordered 14-seater matatus to carry a maximum of eight passengers to curb the spread of coronavirus disease.

Twenty-five seater buses were to carry 15 passengers and vehicles that carry more than 30 were to carry a 60 per cent less.
