NRZ Announces New Fare Structure For Commuter Trains

The National Railways of Zimbabwe (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.

The NRZ re-introduced the commuter train service in Bulawayo in November 2018 and all fares were pegged at a flat rate of 50 cents per ride for all passengers, irrespective of age.

The 10 trip multiple ride ticket was $4.50, a discount of 10 percent which has been maintained on the new fares.
