The main benefits of Toyota leasing to GOK Ministries, Parastatals, Agencies & County Governments are cash flow management, professional fleet management, driver training and truly countrywide aftersales support. The pilot lease program for the National Police Service vehicles is part of the wider government of Kenya agenda for reforming public service. The GOK takes security as the bedrock for sustained social economic development for the country to achieve middle income status by 2018 and full industrialization by 2030. The Vision 2030 blueprint puts its main emphasis on infrastructure, transport, logistics, energy, rural development, agricultural productivity and food security.
Leasing has therefore been adopted as the framework to provide access to a largely increased number of well-maintained and utilized vehicles. Public service transport has generally been inadequate to meet service delivery requirements due to the age, condition and poor utilization of government vehicles.
The Toyota Government Lease Department and the NPS Training Department rolled out a countrywide training schedule for lease sensitization. This nationwide training started in Nairobi County in March 2014 and so far over 3,000 NPS drivers in 41 counties have already been trained. The lease program has promoted skills transfer to the counties which was one of the goals, and devolution which is a key pillar of Vision 2030 blue print.
The vehicle leasing concept has been received positively across the country with notable presence of the new vehicles in all counties.
