NRC Managing Director, Fidet Okhiria, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Friday.
He said: “The decision which was made in collaboration with the Ministry of Transportation, is to ease movement of citizens during the yuletide.
“This is to help ease the cost of transportation and enable citizens to move easily enjoy the festive period.
“Passengers are however advised to ensure they obtain their tickets from appropriate quarters at no cost, to enable them to gain access and enter the trains.
“All passengers are also enjoined to observe and obey COVID-19 rules by wearing of face mask, washing and sanitising of hands.”
Okhiria reiterated the Federal Government’s commitment to ensuring the safety of passengers and trains during the period.
Meanwhile, Lagos State Government has also approved free rides on Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridors on Christmas and New Year days for all residents.
