The Federal Government has extended the free rail services for commuters.

The Nigerian Railway Corporation, NRC, disclosed this on Thursday on its official website.

NRC noted that the free rail service would expire on January 7, 2024, instead of January 4, as it was earlier announced.


The announcement by the NRC implies that for the next three days, Nigerians who book their train tickets using the NRC’s e-ticketing platform can enjoy free train rides nationwide.

“Dear Passengers, we are pleased to inform you that train services will be free of charge from December 21, 2023, to January 7, 2024, as per the directive of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

“We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!,” the message on the NRC website read.

Recall that on December 20, 2023, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu announced a 50 per cent transport fare discount for interstate travel and free commuter rides on all rail lines from December 2023 to January 4, 2024.
