Side Note: The Meaning of Express and normal Rides

With this increase, the Nigerian Railway Corporation, also, added another service to cater to business travellerss and others that are in a hast to reach their destination. The new services are the Normal and express ride.

Express Ride: Express ride as the name implies means that it is a non-stop ride. The train will only stop at Kubwa and Idu stations.

Normal Ride: This is exactly opposite of express service. The train will stop at all the train stations along the Abuja to Kaduna route.

Also, a luggage carriage van has been added. If you have lots of luggage, worry less, there is a baggage van for you.

      I am currently not at the station now. But i would advice you goto any station close to you and get all the information you need concerning luggage. If you are travelling with the train, luggage is free.

  2. Can I travel to Delta state and what’s the cost? I can’t find anyone who has traveled through that route or assistance on how to book the ticket.
