Train Passengers Lament Difficulty In Accessing E-ticket
Three months into the commencement of the electronic ticketing for the Abuja–Kaduna railway transport, passengers, especially on the Kaduna axis, have continued to lament the difficulty in accessing the online platform.
Not much complaint came from passengers on the Abuja axis, as they could easily buy at Idu or Kubwa train station if they were unable to buy online.
But the situation is different for passengers on the Kaduna axis, as many of them, who were unable to buy the ticket online, had to arrive at the station three hours before the schedule to buy tickets over the counter.
This is because of the crowd that usually besieged the early morning train that is the 6.45 a.m. and the 10.45 a.m.
Many of the passengers lamented that they had to bribe some of the ticketing officials with amounts between N200 and N500 to get on the train.
