How You Can Get Involved
It's simple - give public transport a go! We want you to ditch the car and get on-board the bus or train. Taking public transport, even just one day a week, can help you save money, reduce stress, enjoy a more active and healthier travel routine, relax or be more productive on-board services and reduce your environmental impact.

Corporate Challenge
Would you like to run your own Bus + Train Week event? We're here to help!
Public transport plays a vital role in the success of Northern Ireland as a regional economy and as a progressive, healthy society. The #GetOnBoardNI Corporate Challenge is a unique platform for organisations to showcase their CSR and sustainability efforts.
 
 
If you're interested in getting on-board we will provide your organisation with a Bus + Train Week Corporate Pack containing all you and your colleagues need to get on-board and measure your public transport movement.
Packs contain everything from journey logs and wall barometers to balloons, ticket giveaways and posters - helping to create excitement and communicate the campaign with your employees. The journey log enables organisations to calculate the number of car journeys converted to public transport and determine miles saved.
We'll encourage friendly competition between organisations during the Challenge with Awards for the Most Creative Organisation, Best Small Organisation, Best Large Organisation, Public Sector Champion and Council Champion.
Supported by BITC, IOD, CBI and NI Chamber of Commerce and Industry
