Delivering investment for Northern Ireland’s continual development
Public transport supports communities in every part of Northern Ireland by helping to strengthen economic growth and social inclusion, as well as environmental sustainability. On an individual level, public transport gives people choices, freedom and additional opportunities in terms of business, education, shopping, travel, tourism and leisure pursuits. Here, Chris Conway, Group Chief Executive of Northern Ireland’s main public transport provider, Translink, writes about the passion for providing first-class public transport which is endorsed by their guiding values of safety, people, innovation, responsibility, integrity and teamwork – the Translink SPIRIT.

An exciting time
It is an exciting time for Translink, with several major projects ongoing and more in the pipeline, coupled with record numbers of passengers across all services – something we’re set to further consolidate this year. This has been assisted by investment in fleet and the introduction of additional services, such as Ulsterbus Urby, serving towns and villages in the Belfast commuter belt with high-frequency, high-specification double-deck buses to ensure quicker and more comfortable journeys for those travelling to and from the city at peak times.
