Suburban train from Lubango returned to service and transported more than 1000 people in the first week

Rail traffic on the Nangombe/Luabngo/Poiares River route has already resumed, with the Lubango suburban train of the Moçâmedes Railway (CFM) carrying a total of 1,500 people in the first week of operations.


With travel suspended for almost two years due to the covid-19 pandemic, the locomotive returned with six daily trips, with each ticket worth 100 kwanzas.

According to Angop, the trips take place from Monday to Friday, except holidays, with the first trip of the day taking place at 5:00 am and the last at 6:00 pm.

The return of the circulation of this locomotive comes to alleviate mobility problems, considered Jacob Hipólito, Director of Marketing, Communication and Image at CFM, noting that 500 seats are available on each trip.

In the first week of operation alone, the train took a total of 1500 people, including students, employees and people in general.

A membership that the head of CFM considered as "satisfactory", since before the stop of circulation, between 2500 and 3000 people were transported per day, on average.

"Adherence is satisfactory, as although before the stoppage it was already a consolidated service, the average daily transport was between 2500 and 3000 passengers and we believe that with time we will reach this figure and exceed it", he said, speaking to Angop.

He also took the opportunity to appeal to citizens to cooperate with CFM in the fight against vandalism.

Extending over a 905 kilometer line, which runs from Namibe to Menongue (Cuando Cubango), CFM has 56 stations, based in Lubango.
