Translink has announced additional late-night services and widespread fare discounts for customers travelling on public transport during the festive season. Offers include one third of day returns after 9.30am and all weekend and weekend midnight services from Belfast.

The Festive #Smartmovers travel package has been welcomed by Newry, Mourne and Down District Council who have backed Translink’s efforts to encourage shoppers, partygoers and visitors in the area to use public transport. Full details available online now at WWW.TRANSLINK.CO.UK/CHRISTMAS

Keeping Newry moving over the festive season, passengers can enjoy one third-off day return tickets on all Ulsterbus, Goldline and NI Railways services after 9:30am (Mon-Fri) and all-day Saturday and Sunday until 29 December on train services. The festive package also extends to the popular Enterprise service with £50 tickets for 2 adults and 4 children after 9:30am.

Weekend midnight services are back by popular demand until 21 December on selected Newry (238) services. And for those large groups making festive trips this season, Friends and Family tickets offer unlimited travel for just £18 until 1 January.

Additional highlights include a reduced Bus Rambler Ticket (£9.50) offering unlimited travel on all Ulsterbus and Goldline services after 9:15am; early morning discounted fares including £10 day return on Goldline from Newry to Belfast, and one third-off from Downpatrick and Newcastle to Belfast.

Announcing the package, Greg McLaughlin of Translink said “With Christmas just weeks away, this is a very busy time of year and we’ll be working hard to meet our customers’ festive travel requirements whether they’re making a journey home, shopping for gifts or catching up with family and friends. 

“Our widespread service enhancements, late night services and fantastic choice of discount tickets will hopefully help cut the cost of Christmas, support local traders and offer hassle-free journeys over the festive season.” 

Now in its third year, Translink’s ‘Stuff A Bus’ Toy Appeal needs the public’s support to help stuff a double decker bus with more than 20,000 presents. Collection points are located at Newry and Downpatrick Bus Stations until December 17 for anyone who wishes to donate.

Purchasing just one extra gift could make a difference to a child’s life this Christmas. Follow the conversation online using #StuffABusNI
