The Nigerian Railway Corporation, NRC, has begun an online sale of train tickets with the official unveiling of a N900m e-ticketing platform.
The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, made this known on Thursday, January 21, 2021, during the launch of the e-ticketing platform in Abuja.
Recall that Amaechi had, on January 13, informed of the e-ticketing which had already begun testing via his verified Twitter handle.
Yes, we have commenced test bookings on the NRC E-ticketing platform, starting with the Abuja-Kaduna rail line. Next week, we’ll launch fully. Check it out and make bookings at: https://t.co/bcuXRCbmjL

Speaking during the launch which was live on Zoom, Amachehi revealed that the project was made possible after three years of rigorous processing.
“This project which is a Public-Private Partnership is a product of over three years of rigorous procurement process and due diligence involving the NRC, NITDA and finally obtaining approval from the Federal Executive Council.
“Today marks the beginning of the automation of ticket sales in all our major stations on the Abuja Kaduna train service. This is a total package that also includes access control which will be deployed subsequently.
“It is my believe that deploying the secured ticketing solution is in line with world best practice, and will enhance efficiency, save time and promote accountability while also reducing leakages and promoting economic growth,” Amaechi said.
Find out how to book an online ticket below:
