From Matatu Route No. to SACCO NAME
Category : Stories
If the trends serve us right, there is a big shift as to how Nairobians nowadays identify their way around Nairobi. The shift is from identifying a route as a number to the sacco name.
Its therefore common for someone to think of boarding an UMOINNER to go Umoja and be able to choose between it and UTIMO which are the main saccos instead of #35-60 which is the route number.
The trend also cuts across other routes like ROG/CBET for #23 , Forward Travellers for Kayole or Embassava for Embakasi residents etc
Will the route no. be replaced by the Matatu Sacco brands in the years to come??
