BREAKING: Nigerian Railway Corporation Announces Free Train Services



The Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) has announced the commencement of free train services across the country.

The free train services are expected to begin from Thursday December 21, 2023 to Thursday January 4, 2024.

A statement by the NRC seen by Politics Nigeria reads: “Passengers are advised to obtain their free tickets via the online e-ticketing platforms only.


“Tickets will not be issued at any of the corporation’s train stations. Please note that no commuter will be allowed to board the train without a ticket.

“We enjoin commuters to be orderly, obey security personnel and the laid down boarding instructions of the NRC and those of its officials while at the station and on board the trains.

“We wish all our esteemed customers a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year in advance.”
