Atbara is a major hub for passenger trains in Sudan. However as of 2021, the only reliable link is with the capital Khartoum which is connected by the daily Nile Express train. Passenger trains from Wadi Halfa, connecting with the ferry from Egypt, are supposed to run once-weekly but cancellations are frequent. The same is true for trains from Port Sudan which runs on an irregular schedule.
