The Federal Government has announced free train ride for travellers along the Lagos-Ibadan standard gauge rail line for three months.
The Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Amaechi, made the announcement on Saturday via his official Twitter handle.
He said that the take-off point is the Iju train station in Lagos while the free ride would last beyond the festive period.
Amaechi noted that it would run through March 2020.
He, therefore, urged commuters along the route to take advantage and “ride to the next level”.
