The Nigeria Railway Corporation (NRC) has announced the addition of new trips to the Lagos-Ibadan train service schedule for weekends.
The corporation announced this in a notice seen by newsmen, stating that the new trips were for Friday and Saturday train schedules.
For the Friday train schedule, it added a trip to Ibadan for 12 pm and another trip for 1pm on Saturday.
This means that the Lagos-Ibadan train service will run three trips every Friday and Saturday with the point of departure at the Mobaji Johnson train station, Lagos.
Passengers can now travel to Ibadan on Friday at the train station by 8 pm, 12 pm and 4 pm, while on Saturday, the train movement will depart at 8am, 1pm and 6 pm.
Meanwhile, the Lagos-Ibadan train schedule for Monday to Thursday, including Sunday, remains intact with 8 pm and 4 pm trips.
It would be recalled that the federal government declared free train rides for citizens from December 24 to January 4, 2022.
According to the Federal Government, the decision was made to ease transportation costs and enable easy movement.
