Motorists will be required to first register using various methods which include County’s Android app (Nairobi City County Mobile) or use of USSD code, *217#, or use of their website www.epayments.nairobi.go.ke. Once you create the account, you will also be able to access your account in all of the three methods.

Dial *217#, this prompts you to open an account for future use: enter your Names, National ID/Passport No, Year of Birth and a PIN number. You will receive a message confirming that your account has been successfully created.
You can use your eJijipay to pay for daily parking, seasonal parking, and parking for Matatu Saccos, penalties and to check the status of your payment.
