Nairobi City has been mauled by rampant vehicular traffic attributed to the many cars on the rather lean roads in Kenya. This has driven most people to opt for the rail transport in Nairobi over road transport in Nairobi.

In the recent past, there are three new railway stations in Nairobi city that have been opened. These new railway stations newly opened in Nairobi are:
