Abuja-Kaduna Rail: Passengers To Anticipate Increase In Fare – Minister

As a result of the economic situation in Nigeria, the Minister of Transportation, Mu’azu Sambo, has on Sunday November 27th, said that there will be an increase in the rail service fare.

The minister, also laid emphasis on the operational system of the Abuja-kaduna rail travel disclosed that the number of trips per day will also be reduced, and that there will be night travelling.

Sambo disclosed this to journalists on Sunday in Kaduna while inspecting the train station.

He said, “The number of trips will be reduced. Naturally, you should expect that a certain number of passengers will not be comfortable boarding the train for obvious reasons.”

He further stated that the number of trips per day would increase as the travelling population increased.

“We are human beings, we are bound to feel a little bit uncomfortable until we can see that every security measure has been put in place. So, we will reduce the number of trips and as the travelling population picks up, we will increase the number of trips but we will certainly not travel at night for now.

“Please, expect an increase in fares. I am having final consultation with the management of the Nigerian Railway Corporation and the management of the ministry to see whether it will be immediate or we will take a little time.
