Announcing the Christmas travel package, Greg McLaughlin from Translink said “We do our best every year to bring the Christmas spirit to life in our stations and on-board services. This year we’re calling on everyone to help us fill a Double Decker bus full of children’s toys in aid of St. Vincent De Paul and the Salvation Army. In partnership with U105 Radio, we’ve launched our ‘Stuff A Bus’ Toy Appeal which is now in its second year and would encourage Newry residents to keep an eye out for drop-off points in selected stations. We would like to thank our customers for all their support and wish them a very Happy Christmas,” said Greg.

Councillor Mark Murnin, Chairman of Newry, Mourne and Down District Council is encouraged people to take public transport “Newry, Mourne and Down District Council is delighted to partner with Translink to launch its 2018 festive travel campaign. We recognise the great lengths Translink goes to in order to make these services and offers available and would encourage everyone to make the smart move and choose public transport when travelling to local shops and attractions this season.

“We want to ease congestion on our roads and encourage more people to enjoy the low-cost and convenient option of public transport at a time of the year when our towns and cities are at their busiest.”
