Using iLink on the bus

4 easy steps to using your iLink Card on the bus:

  • Hold your iLink Card to the target on the ticket machine reader with the front of the card facing upwards.
  • When the card reads successfully, the machine will bleep once and the green light will light up.
  • The machine will issue you with a paper ticket showing the details of your journey.  The ticket must be retained for inspection.
  • If the red light appears, remove your iLink Card, then hold it to the target and try again.

Using iLink on the train

3 easy steps to validating your iLink Card at a train station:

Translink Platform Validators are located at several stations on the NI Railways network so you can quickly validate your iLink Card for each leg of your journey.

Where a validator machine is available you MUST use it to validate your iLink Card for each leg of your journey. If a validator machine is not available the ticket barrier staff will validate your iLink Card for you.

  • Hold your iLink Card to the target at the bottom of the validator machine.
  • When the card reads successfully, the machine will bleep once.  A green light will light up and a ? symbol will appear on the screen at the top.
  • If a red light appears and an X symbol appears on the screen at the top, remove your iLink Card and speak to a member of staff.

The validator machine does not issue a ticket or receipt. It simply checks that your iLink Card is valid to make a journey.

No cash is accepted or stored in a validator machine.

You are required to present your iLink Card to any authorised member of Translink staff when requested.
