The transport expo will start on Wednesday before culminating in a gala night on Friday this week.
“The company that will win this award will attract more passengers as the travelers will have the appetite to use it more than the others. The award has a lot of brand value that will boost their business, ”said Eng Njoroge.
“The award may not have huge monetary value but the impact that will create the company will be more important in terms of their reputation,” he added.
