History
Opened2017 [1]

Mombasa Terminus is a railway station on the Mombasa–Nairobi Standard Gauge Railway located in Mombasa. The station is located in a suburb of Mombasa called Miritini. The architecture of the station building is made up of concentric circles and a central tower, representing a ripple in the ocean.

Two passenger trains leave the station everyday, an inter-county train that stops at all stations and an express train that goes directly to Nairobi Terminus.[2][3]
