THE RETURN OF THE PASSENGER TRAIN IS WELCOME

Latest news from Ministry of Transport and Communications confirm that the passenger train will be back in the near future. Although the time frame has not yet been revealed, the Ministry of Transport and Communications is hopeful that the whole process will be concluded in the first quarter of 2015 and the train will be in service at least by June or July the same year. This year marks the five years after the service was suspended, it should be noted that the absence of the passenger train meant that many people were forced to use their own transport or public buses, this then increased the volume of traffic along the A1 road. Therefore Botswana Railways has come up with a good strategy to run the train commercially to sustain itself and it has embarked on benchmarking the exercise.
