New Ulsterbus services for Lisburn City

1 August 2017

In time for summer adventures and back-to-school shopping, Translink is encouraging the public to take advantage of two new bus services for the Lisburn area. 

Translink’s new Ulsterbus 325m service is now operating from the train station to Belsize Road, Boomers Road, Derriaghy Road and Pond Park Road, Mondays – Fridays, and includes early morning services.

As an added bonus, this new bus service is free with a valid NI Railways weekly or monthly paper ticket, mLink ticket or an aLink card until the end of August (£1 single fare from September onwards).

It will also help alleviate parking requirements around the station.  In addition to the 325m service, Translink has also announced the 25c, a new service from Lisburn Buscentre to Dundonald Ulster Hospital. 

Speaking about the new services, Jim McCauley, Translink Service Delivery Manager, said:
“We are always looking for ways to improve our services and strengthen public transport routes for the Lisburn community and across Northern Ireland.

We are delighted to announce the new services which will help train passengers get to popular destinations faster and provide a direct route to Dundonald Ulster Hospital.

It will also mean people in the Dundonald, Belvoir Park and Forestside areas can easily travel to Lisburn Buscentre – a short walk to Lagan Valley Hospital. 

It is our goal at Translink to make sure the bus and train remains affordable and accessible, making it Lisburn’s first choice for travel. The new services provide better connections to shops, restaurants and hospital links, so we are confident they will help Lisburn residents make the ‘smart move’ to public transport.  

Alderman Allan Ewart MBE, Chairman of Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council Development Committee, has come out in support of the new services and is encouraging local residents to get on board Lisburn’s public transport services. He said:
“It is so important for the Lisburn and Castlereagh area to be accessible, so I would like to thank Translink for creating these additional services. Improving public transport is an important piece in maintaining a thriving community as it contributes to the economy and is good for the environment. I urge all local residents to try these new services and experience Lisburn, whether it’s for a day of shopping or a day out with the family.”
