To reflect the huge growth in demand for contactless payments, Northern Ireland’s public transport operator, Translink, has enhanced its app, smartcard and contactless offerings.

Translink app mLinkTranslink has introduced an extended range of new ‘mLink’ app ticket options as part of its drive towards contactless ticketing. The move reflects huge growth in demand for contactless payments.  

Single journey tickets are now available to purchase via Translink’s ‘mLink’ mobile ticketing app (free to download) on NI Railways, Metro, Glider, Goldline and P&R services for Adult, Child, yLink and 24+ customers.

This latest development adds to the existing range of mLink mobile tickets already popular with customers such as weekly, monthly or day travel options.

Translink is also reminding its passengers to consider using smartcards like Smartlink, dayLink and iLink which have grown in popularity and can be easily topped-up and used multiple times.  

Chris Conway, Translink Group Chief Executive, says these enhancements are part of our ongoing journey to increase contactless ticketing across the bus and rail network: “More people want contactless payment options so we are meeting this demand and taking every step possible to keep everyone safe whilst using public transport.”
