The FG is set to fully launch the Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) e-ticketing platform next week.
The NRC says the 24 coaches would run 16 daily trips when operations commence next month.
The government approved the increase due to the fact that the train will be conveying half its capacity.
NRC said seats have been selected to be used to observe social distancing laws.
The Nigerian Railway Corporation has notified all passengers using train service that it would stop operation due to the increasing cases of Coronavirus in the country.
