Translink has announced that local passengers, visitors, and Game of Thrones fans alike will be able to explore one of the world’s best regions, the Causeway Coast, with a new extended £8 adult day ticket.

The Causeway Rambler ticket is for use on the hop-on hop-off Ulsterbus service from Coleraine to Ballycastle – a convenient route to all the main attractions such as The Giant’s Causeway, Bushmills Distillery and Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge.

Dunluce Castle, better known to Game of Thrones fanatics as House of Greyjoy, can be accessed via the bus route as well as Larrybane Quarry, the location for The Stormlands and Renly Baratheon’s camp in the hit TV series, sited beside the Carrick-A-Rede car park.

Sam Todd, Translink Service Delivery Manager, said:

 “Running every 30 minutes from Monday – Sunday from now until the end of September, the 172/402 Causeway Rambler service is perfect for day-trippers wanting to experience some of the island’s best views and attractions during the spring and summer months at their own pace.

“With the Causeway Coastal Route being rated the ‘world’s best region’ by Lonely Planet last year, we hope to see lots of customers making the smart move and using this easy hop-on hop-off service and great value ticket.

The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, Councillor Joan Baird, OBE said:

“I am thrilled that Translink has extended its Causeway Rambler service, giving passengers the opportunity to experience all that the Causeway Coast and Glens area has to offer, and at a great price too.”

A Bus Rambler ticket costs just £8 (adult) or £4 (child) and allows passengers to ‘hop-on, hop-off’ all day for all our bus and coach services or an iLink card from £16.00 one day unlimited bus and train travel.

Translink is also encouraging anyone travelling from Belfast or Ballymena to the Antrim Coast and Giant’s Causeway to take advantage of a third-off day return travel on the daily 221 Goldline coach service departing Europa Buscentre at 9.30am and Ballymena at 10.15am (Mon – Sun). Translink customers will enjoy a special £1.50 discount on Giant’s Causeway admission prices with the return coach service departing at 2.45pm back to Ballymena and Belfast.
