Exploiting New Technology

We will be commencing the roll-out of our new ticketing systems with the introduction of Glider. New ticketing has a keen focus on integration, flexibility and convenience, with customers preferring to use products like mLink - mobile phone ticketing.
We are planning further enhancements to make things even more convenient. Options will include contactless payment cards on bus, e-purse payments and ticket vending machines, all making going by bus, Glider and train even easier. We will also be introducing new on-line / app ticket purchases and smartcard top-ups.
Real-Time on Glider
We already have real-time passenger information available for Metro through our journey planner and on-line and this technology will also be available for Glider.
Real-time information will also be made available through the NI Open Data portal to enable third parties the opportunity to explore further innovations and help us to find even smarter and better ways of delivering and promoting shared mobility services.
