Guide To Glide
 

Glider is the new, effortless and smooth way to travel. It’s easy to use, frequent, accessible and excellent value, running approximately every 7 to 8 minutes throughout most of the day.
 
The Glider G1 service operates a direct cross-city service between east and west Belfast and the Glider G2 service operates between Belfast City Centre and Titanic Quarter. Glider is fully integrated with Metro with the same great value fares and tickets which you can use on both Glider and Metro.
 

Whats New?
 
With Glider you complete all your ticketing before you board with ticket vending machines and Smartcard validators at every halt speeding up boarding. Simply buy a ticket or tap your Smartcard and when Glider arrives push the button on the door. Glider also has improved passenger information and greater bus priority along the routes.
