    If you are needing a bus to Kenya from Jinja the place to go is either the Akamba Bus or Kampala Coach bus offices which are pretty much next to each other on the roundabout north east of town. This is not the roundabout near Owen Falls dam it is further along the Tororo highway than this. Both offices are in a block of buildings opposite the Gapco petrol Station.

    I was told before hand that I could tickets from the city's tourist office but I never found this open. So I was more tha happy to buy my ticket from the nice chap in the Akamba ticket office. He was very helpfull and showed me the price list you'll see I've taken a photo of. Prices are the same as they are from Kampala.

    It is best to buy your tickets a day or so in advance as the the bus tends to fills up; you may not think this as the almost empty bus leaves Jinja as a lot of passengers have booked tickets from the border or Kisumu to Nairobi.

    UPDATE MARCH 2013. Kampala coach are still here but Akamba have ceased to exist

    Transport to Kampala

    by muguruki Written Jul 5, 2011

    There is a bus station South East of the Market this is usually the stage for the bigger long distance buses.

    More frequent than the bigger buses are the smaller Taxi minibuses and twenty seater coaches that leave from the taxi park behind the Fairway Hotel. Transport to Kampla is constant througout the day.

    No passengers train services from Jinja anymore. But watch the level crossing as it is still busy with freight traffic.
