Super Metro: Who Owns It?

Super Metro is the most trusted Sacco in Kenya. It has faithful clients such that they still queue even during the rainy season. One thing the Sacco really worked hard for was customer service. They ensure that their clients are satisfied and arrive on time.

For instance, there are Super Metro buses that use the expressway from Nairobi to Kitengela just to save time and arrive on time (within 30 minutes). In contrast, other matatu Sacco’s take almost two hours from Nairobi to Kitengela with most of them fighting with clients and carrying excess passengers.
