Abuja-Kaduna: NRC adjusts train time schedule

The Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) has announced the adjustment of take-off time schedule for its last two trains from Idu (Abuja) to Rigasa (Kaduna) and vice versa.

Mr Pascal Nnorli, the Manager, Abuja-Kaduna Train Service (AKTS), told the News Agency of Nigeria(NAN) on Friday that the adjustments were to ensure early arrival of the train to its destinations.

According to Nnorli, the train will now depart 30 minutes earlier than its previous take-off time.

He said, “The AK3 from Idu(Abuja) which takes off at 3:30pm to arrive Rigasa (Kaduna) at 5:38pm, will now leave at 3:00 p.m., to arrive at 5:08pm.

According to the manager, the amendment will take effect from Dec. 12.

Nnorli, however, reiterated the commitment of the corporation to ensure the safety of its passengers and properties onboard its trains at all times.

NAN reports that the NRC resumed services along the Abuja-Kaduna rail corridor on Dec.5 after over eight months of non-operation. (NAN)
