Local Translink bus and rail managers have engaged directly with political representatives to discuss passenger transport and other Translink activity in the Causeway Coast and Glens area.
The special ‘Meet the Manager’ event, hosted in Coleraine Bus and Rail Centre, provided a platform for discussion around a range of public transport matters, including progress on the new Portrush Train Station, local bus and rail services and park and ride provision, as well as other issues of interest. Local representatives were also informed of Translink’s exciting plans for Bus and Train Week 2019, our fourth annual celebration of public transport, which runs from 3-9 June with great fare discounts and events right across the Translink network.
Speaking at the event, Sam Todd, Translink’s Service Delivery Manager for the Causeway Coast area, said:
“This has been a very useful and informative session, helping to provide local representatives at all levels with an update on public transport services in the area, including on work we’re doing in Portrush to facilitate journeys during The 148th Open this July, including the £5.6m investment in the town’s new train station.
‘‘We were delighted to welcome a cross-party group of local MLAs and councillors, as well as the local MP, from across the Causeway Coast and Glens borough to Coleraine Bus and Rail Centre in order to learn more about how Translink is working to make public transport ‘your first choice for travel’ in Causeway Coast and Glens and across Northern Ireland.
“We are grateful to local representatives for attending this session and ask for their ongoing support as Translink continues to work to deliver attractive services for everyone.’’.
