Team Swat Shuttles Destinations
Though they say that they operate in counties in Kenya, Team Swat Shuttles operate mainly to the South Rift, Western and Nyanza parts of Kenya.
Most of the routes they operate on are from Nairobi to the following cities and towns;
From my own investigation however, their main route is the Nairobi-Kapsabet-Chavakali- Kakamega. They have offices in Nairobi, Kapsabet, Chavakali and Kakamega cities and directly compete with other shuttles on this route such as Classic Shuttle, Classic Luxury Shuttle, Bungoma line Shuttle and Blueline Shuttles.

Team Swat Shuttles Reviews
Team Swat is your average shuttles matatus that operate on Kenyan roads. Do not expect anything special from them. They are no better than their competition.
I took sometime to look at their Facebook page and I found the following reviews;
Shikavi Mayaki Khalayi Says,
Any time I have used them to send a parcel, they charge way more than other shuttles, they never give a receipt after payment for the parcel and they don’t communicate on time. So frustrating. Wacha nirudi blueline, they are transparent.
Here is another review from Kipng’etich Kipng’etich, he says;
‘KDE 069T Team Swat shuttles the ride was smooth, the driver very humble, no over speeding, no loud music…wow! I appreciate this driver Kapsabet to Nairobi.’
Lastly, here is what Pius Wambua who does not recommend Team Swat says,
‘Sleepy reckless driver assigned to KDK 228H on night of 10.4.23 from Nairobi to Kakamega. Quite a terrible experience!’
You maybe asking, have I ever used Team Swat, and what my experience!
The quick answer to this is that I have used Team Swat once, from Kapsabet to Nairobi. One thing I can say categorically is that these shuttles are sometimes driven recklessly.
I got the impression that they are tying to compete with other vehicles on the road. As a result of this, they overtake recklessly.
A recent accident (April 2023) in Naivaisha where one of there Shuttles collided with a lorry was a result of reckless overtaking. Several students from a school in Vihiga County lost their lives.
And as I said earlier, they are just your average matatu shuttles on the road, let not there name deceive you that they are any different.
Team Swat is just another shuttle company is competing with other shuttles on the lucrative Nairobi -Western Kenya routes. They offer shuttle services, parcel services and car hire and rental services.
So, what was you experience travelling with Team Swat Shuttles, I will be glad to hear your thoughts below.
