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

The Manager of Abuja-Kaduna Train Service (AKTS), Pascal Nnoli said on Friday that the adjustments were to ensure the early arrival of the trains to their destinations.

The trains will now depart 30 minutes earlier than their previous take-off times.

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

“Also, the KA4 train of 2:00 pm from Rigasa (Kaduna) will now depart at 1:30 pm and arrive at Idu (Abuja) at 3:37 pm instead of 4:07 pm.

The amendment will take effect from December 12.

Nnoli, however, restated the commitment of the corporation to the safety of its passengers and the properties onboard its trains.

The NRC resumed services along the Abuja-Kaduna rail corridor on December 5 after nine months of no operation.
