NRZ Hikes Commuter Train Fares By 100%

National  Railways of Zimbabwe (NRZ) public relations officer Nyasha Maravanyika confirmed the parastatal has hiked fares by 100 percent.

Maravanyika said the price hike has been necessitated by an increase in the organisation’s operational expenses which have been caused by high cost of spares. Said Maravanyika

NRZ would like to advise members of the travelling public of a new fare structure for the City-Cowdray Park Commuter Train service. Starting on Monday 4 February 2019, there will be separate fares for children and adults. Single ride fares for adults will go up from 50 cents to $1. Children and school children in uniform will continue paying 50 cents. Students at tertiary institutions of learning will pay $1 while a multiple ride budget ticket will go up from $4.50 to $9. The multiple-ride budget ticket is valid for 10 trips. The adjustment in the prices of fares has been necessitated by an increase in the organisation’s operational expenses which have been caused by high cost of spares.
