Translink briefing for Foyle Representatives

13 March 2019

Local Translink bus and rail managers have engaged directly with local political representatives to discuss passenger transport in the Derry~Londonderry area. 

The ‘Meet the Manager’ event, hosted in Foyle Street Bus Centre in the city, provided a platform for discussion around a range of local transport matters, including: local bus and rail services, cross-border transport connections, Goldline services and an update on the ongoing North-West Multi-Modal Transport Hub project at the old Waterside Train Station, which represents an investment of around £27 million in the city, with funding secured from the European Union’s INTERREG VA Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body, with match funding provided by the Department for Infrastructure and the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport in Ireland.  

Alan Young, Translink’s Service Delivery Manager for the Foyle area, said: “These sessions are very useful in terms of providing local representatives at all levels with an update on public transport services in the area, including on Foyle Metro, 212 and 273 Goldline services and NI Railways provision in the region, as well as on the new Multi-Modal Transport Hub taking shape at the old Waterside Station.   

‘‘It was our pleasure to welcome a cross-party of local MLAs and councillors to Foyle Street Bus Centre in the heart of the city in order to learn more about how Translink is working to make public transport your first choice for travel in Derry~Londonderry and across Northern Ireland.

“We would once again like to thank local representatives for attending this session and ask for their continued support as we work to deliver attractive services for everyone.’’.
