How it Works
Once you are ready and certain of your train travel, I will follow the following process to ensure you get the tickets.
- You let me know your preferred travel time and Class
- I check the availability of the tickets
- You send me the money and travel details
- I book the tickets for you
- I send you the e-ticket Booking Number and User Number
You will use the Booking number and User Number to print the tickets at the station on the day of travel (The printing booths are located in the ticketing lobby)
- User: User Number
- Password: Booking Number
In case I am in your departure city (Nairobi or Mombasa), I will print the ticket and hand them to you in person on the day of travel or before then.
That’s it! All you now have to do is show up at the station 1 hour earlier and have an adventure!
To get you the tickets, I will need your travel details which will appear on the tickets.
