Single in the city? Translink wants to hear from you!

5 February 2019

Foyle Metro and Q Radio have teamed up to bring the people of Derry~Londonderry a singles event with a difference – and there’s still time to get involved.

On Wednesday 20th February, Translink will offer 40 local people a spin on the Foyle Metro Matchmaking love bus. Attendees will enjoy welcome drinks in Silver Street and try speed-dating on board the bus, before finishing the evening in The Quays. 

Encouraging people to get involved, Tony McDaid, Service Delivery Manager, Translink said:

“Foyle Metro is a central part of everyday life in our city and we know that passengers enjoy meeting new people when travelling with us. With Foyle Metro Matchmaking, we’re taking things one step further by offering single people the chance to enjoy a night out with a difference on us. 

“We have run similar events in Belfast and if the success of those is anything to go by, we expect there will be high demand for places in Derry~Londonderry. It’s a fun opportunity to be part of a really unique event and if love blossoms on-board, all the better!”

The special event also promotes Foyle Metro’s £2 all day travel ticket using the Translink mLink mobile app.
