It is logical for a BRT to work better on the left lane of the service lane, complete with government own high occupancy vehicles HOV like is the case of Dar, Addis, Dakar and Johannesburg which are way ahead of Nairobi City in organised public transport.  Instead of misleading KENHA into marking the wrong lane NAMATA ought to have procured the special buses first since the privately owned buses do not fit BRT world standards. To avoid a ridiculous service the agencies ought to have done a public participation to gauge the feeling and preferences of the otherwise very good idea done wrong and in haste. For example, the necessary furniture is not in place. A BRT need modern automated pick and drop facilities and the area of service, raised kerb demarcated Lane to deter misuse.  A good BRT lane is 3.5m wide with 3.5m passing lane & a 0.5m lane separator. Median stations ("bus stops") allow passengers to board without interfering with regular traffic. Pre-trained formal crew, swipe and enter services. The fact that Nairobi has been left out of the rapid progressing cities of Africa should not jolt the government agencies into panicked knee-jerk unsustainable actions. UITP and other Scandinavian Urban systems will not allow Nairobi to lower the standards of a BRT. The agencies have put a cart before a horse.  Mombasa Road has enough expansion area at the median strip for a new BRT to be constructed. Motorists can’t allow the present insufficient lanes to be hived off. The government should stop being lazy and work correctly
