Translink has introduced additional Ulsterbus/Goldline 218 and 219 services between Belfast, Ballymena and Coleraine.
Extra journeys have been added to the timetable, including an additional 218a morning service leaving Coleraine at 7.15am and Ballymena at 8.00am, as well as an evening service departing Belfast’s Europa Buscentre at 5.15pm to cater for commuters returning home. There is also a new 8.30pm service from Ballymena to Belfast and a 9.45pm departure from Belfast to Ballymena.
Ulsterbus Service Delivery Manager for Ballymena and Antrim John Morgan said: “Passengers boarding at Ballymena can now choose from ten departures to Belfast between 6.00am and 9.00am Monday to Friday and ten departures from Belfast Europa Buscentre each evening between 4.15pm and 6.45pm, offering more flexibility for customers.
“The 218 and 219 routes also service Ballee Park and Ride which offers our customers the potential to leave their car and travel by Goldline coach to and from Belfast.
John concluded: “There are also a range of fare options – our customers want best value and we encourage everyone to take advantage of the savings to be made with our range of everyday value tickets and offers including Smartlink cards and 1/3 off Ulsterbus after 9.30am. We hope these route enhancements will encourage more people to use our bus services and make Translink “Your First Choice for Travel” in Northern Ireland”.
