Executive message

URC took over operations from RVR in 2018 after a failed concession. Operations were so low due to the poor management of the concessionaire, with track and rolling stock in a state of wear and disrepair. Ever since, URC has been struggling to keep the railway operations going, barely meeting the operational costs. Amidst all the challenges the Corporation is facing, URC has been able to keep operations offering both freight and passenger services.

According to the URC strategic plan 2021/21-2024/25, the Corporation’s strategic direction aims at increasing access to rail services by developing the capacity of URC and enable the Corporation realize her vision “ The Preferred Freight and Passenger Transporter in Eastern Africa by 2040”
