Abuja-Kaduna Train Fare To Increase, No Night Travels

Abuja-Kaduna Train Fare To Increase, No Night Travels

The Minister of Transportation, Mu’azu Sambo, has disclosed that the newly reopened Abuja-Kaduna train service will not engage in night travels for the moment. He also disclosed that there would be an increment in charges for the service.

Speaking while inspecting the train station in Kaduna, Sambo 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.

“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 traveling 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.

“We all know that prices of things have gone up, even airfares have gone up and we have not heard anybody cry about it. Why is it that it’s only when it is train fares that people are reactive?,” he added.
