This Christmas will see Translink, Northern Ireland’s Public Transport Provider, introduce ‘more discounted fares than ever’ to ensure shoppers and commuters can make their all-important journeys over the festive period.
With a host of network-wide fare reductions in Larne and across Northern Ireland, people can enjoy the prospect of seeing family, friends and work colleagues without the worry of driving and car parking.
Talking about the exciting range of fare promotions John Morgan, Service Delivery Manager at Translink said:
“We are working closely with Mid and East Antrim Borough Council and partners to support the local retail and hospitality sector, in Larne and surrounding areas. We have a range of promotions to encourage shoppers, commuters and families to ditch the car and enjoy a festive day out in the area.
“For commuters who live close to the Larne NI Railways line, we have already delivered to homes 50% off vouchers for pre-9.30am travel before Christmas. We’re also offering vouchers to all Larne line passengers a 2-for-1 deal after 6.30pm for travel to Belfast.
“For anyone planning to Christmas shop or visit friends, we’re offering a day return for the same price as a single across Northern Ireland on our Goldline and Ulsterbus services after 9.30am from now until December 31, 2016. And for families looking for a fun day out, our Family and Friends ticket offers one day’s unlimited travel for up to two adults and four children across all services on weekdays after 9.30am and no time restriction on Saturdays and Sundays(for £22) and from December 17 – January 2, 2017 for the reduced fare of £15.”
