New hourly train services

30 June 2017

Translink NI Railways is introducing a new train timetable on 3rd July with an enhanced hourly service operating Monday – Saturday between Derry~Londonderry and Belfast.

This follows an investment of £46.4 million to complete a passing loop and installation of new signalling and telecoms on the Coleraine to Derry~Londonderry line earlier this year.

Translink Group Chief Executive, Chris Conway said: “We are pleased to be introducing this new hourly timetable, making it more convenient and attractive for passengers to travel to and from Derry~Londonderry, connecting people and supporting the local economy, attracting visitors and investment.”

“This significant timetable improvement will mean more choices for passengers travelling between NI’s two main cities and along the route” 

“The enhanced train timetable together with our fast, frequent 212 Goldline coach services make transport between Derry~Londonderry and Belfast more attractive and accessible than ever before with over 50 rail and coach return services, every day to choose from.

“Other plans for the city include the introduction of the new Foyle Metro Services in the Autumn and a planning application is also underway for the new Transport Hub within the refurbished Waterside railway station.” Chris concluded

Londonderry Chamber of Commerce President, George Fleming, welcomed the enhanced frequency on the Derry~Londonderry to Belfast route. He said:

“Connectivity is extremely important to the North West region and the introduction of the new hourly rail timetable will bring much more choice to passengers looking to connect to the two largest cities in the region”.
