I am sure you got a Mpesa confirmation which has an account, right? That account number is what you use together with your mobile number to print the tickets

Question asked: I have paid for SGR tickets and I haven’t received the confirmation message. What do I do?

Answer: In the Mpesa message that you get there is an account number from SGR, you will use this account number together with the phone number you used to book with to print the tickets at the departure train station. Arrive about one hour and a half in advance.
