An effective and successful public transport network is vital for the economic, social, and environmental wellbeing of everyone in Northern Ireland; we are committed to the transformation of transport, enabling a modal shift to public transport and active travel, and delivering our Net Zero target.
Translink has significant plans in place to increase passenger capacity, decarbonise our fleet, and deliver infrastructure upgrades, enhanced connections, station investment, and ticketing and technology upgrades.
Just prior to the pandemic, (2018/2019) Translink delivered almost 85 million passenger journeys, a record total, and the highest in two decades. In the last year, passenger growth post-pandemic has been strong, at around 90% of pre-pandemic levels.
Public transport is key for the future of our people, our planet and our prosperity. As we seek to address the climate crisis and restore our economy in challenging times, public transport is taking steps to decarbonise, re-connect communities and revitalise town and city centres. The challenge is a formidable one, but Translink is well placed to meet it.
