Corporate Challenge
Would you like to run your own Bus + Train Week event?
To celebrate Bus + Train Week, 4 – 10 June 2018, Translink is calling on organisations across Northern Ireland to encourage employees to leave the car at home and give the bus and train a go.
We all have a responsibility to ease traffic congestion, promote a healthier lifestyle and support the environment.
Our Corporate Challenge is a great opportunity to showcase what your organisation is doing when it comes to CSR, sustainability and making your community a better place to live and work.


What's in it for my Employees?
Using public transport offers many benefits to your employees and staff which in turn will benefit your business or organisation. Benefits including:

Challenge Champions
Here’s what a couple of Translink’s past Corporate Challenge Champions had to say about the initiative:
"The Barclays Bank Corporate Team thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the #GetonBoardNI Corporate Challenge.

Over 50 percent of people in our office already regularly take public transport to work and during Bus + Train Week, this increased to over 75 percent. Team members reported the health benefits of hopping on board, with a number of staff taking the opportunity to get off a few stops earlier and run or walk the extra distance home.

We’re looking forward to getting involved again this year and will be working hard to get everyone taking the bus or train at least once during the week."
Joanna McArdle
Barclays Bank Corporate Team
"Edwards and Co was delighted to be crowned overall winner of the 2017 Bus and Train Week #GetonBoardNI Challenge.

Our team enthusiastically got behind the initiative, which was an ideal way to publicly showcase our efforts towards sustainable travel. Staff were incentivised to get involved in a selfie competition, with prizes for the best pictures taken on-board the bus or train.  As the week progressed, the challenge gathered real momentum internally, so much so that on the last day of the week, we were able to lend our company carpark to another business and raise £100 for charity in the process.

Taking part in the campaign was a really positive experience, which encouraged staff at all levels to give public transport a go. We’re already planning to get involved again this year and would certainly encourage others to do the same."

Partner, Edwards and Co.
