Urby success after first 3 months in service

17 January 2019

Translink’s new Urby service is attracting record passenger numbers since its introduction last September.



The high spec Double Deck buses were first introduced to Newtownards and Ballyclare and have also been rolled out across Park and Ride services in the Greater Belfast area – Blacks Road, Cairnshill and Sprucefield.

The Urby vehicles, manufactured by Wrightbus, have a modern and striking livery and come with a range of enhanced on board customer features for an even better journey experience.

Translink’s Bus Services Manager David Curry said: “We are very pleased at the initial response to Urby with 8% passenger growth since September. We have also received very positive feedback from our customers who use these services regarding the look and feel of the buses.

“These buses offer the highest levels of passenger comfort with features including a new seating layout with leather seats, offering more space; USB charging points and free WiFi. The buses are state of the art in terms of specification, technology, performance and environmental features.

David concluded: “We look forward to welcoming more ‘smarter’ travellers on board who are looking for a better way to commute and connect with Belfast, to get more ‘me time’ and enjoy a more active and healthier travel option compared to the car”.
