NRZ Increases Fares For Passenger Trains

National Railways of Zimbabwe (NRZ) yesterday increased fares on its inter-city passenger trains by up to 150 percent on some routes with immediate effect.

NRZ operates three daily and two weekly inter-city passenger train services countrywide. The daily train return routes are Bulawayo-Victoria Falls, Bulawayo-Harare and Mutare-Harare while the weekly service is offered on the Bulawayo-Chiredzi and Bulawayo-Chikwalakwala routes. NRZ Public Relations Manager, Mr Nyasha Maravanyika said the increase was a result of rising operational expenses.

He said the increase affects all the three classes with effect from 25 February 2019.  First Class travellers on the Bulawayo-Victoria Falls and Bulawayo-Harare routes will now pay $20 up from $12. The second class is now pegged at $17 from $8 and the economy class is now pegged at $15 from $6.
