As the Abuja-Kaduna train service resumes today, eight months after shutdown, the fare prices have been reviewed upward for all classes of coaches.

Recall the Minister of Transportation, Alh. Muazu Sambo Jaji announced last week the train service will resume this week and that intending travelers should brace for a new fare regime.

Although the new fare hasn’t been announced publicly by the Nigerian Railway Railways Corporation, the operators of the train service, the new pricing has been effected online on the NRC online ticketing App, our correspondent learned.

Details on the new pricing template show that the Inside the Standard coach (economy) now cost N3,600 from the previous N2600, representing a N1,000 increment. The business class now goes for N6,500 as against the N5,000 previously charged. The Executive Class will now go N9,000 as against the N6,000 previously charged. Online purchases will a little extra cost on each fee.

Recall at the wake of the COVID-19 lockdown, the NRC raised the ticket cost by 100 percent. Pre-COVID, first-class Express trip cost N3,000; First-class normal trip: N2,500; the economy express trip was N1,500, and the economy normal trip was N1,300. After COVID, the fare became N6,000, N5,000, N3000 and N2,600 respectively.
