Lagos-Kano Inter City Passenger Train services to start on Friday
The train will depart Lagos by 9.00 am and will stop at major stations such as Abeokuta, Ibadan, Oshogbo, Ilorin, Minna, and Kaduna before it finally arrives its Kano terminal destination on Saturday morning.
The intercity passenger train, which has been the preferred choice of the commuting public for so many years, has standard coaches, air-conditioned sleeper and seater coaches, restaurant, baggage vans, and effective power generating set for the comfort of travellers.
In a statement, the corporation’s Assistant Director, Public Relations, Mr. Olusegun Esan, said: “When the passenger train service resumes, it is certain that the service will bring tremendous impact to the transport sector while social integration and interconnectivity of the nation will be further strengthened. The service will foster communities’ living standard and is also expected to enhance travellers’ safety, convenience and affordability.”
