Travel Arrangements For Major Events

"working hard to exceed customer expectations"
28th February 2014


Dear Colleagues,

We are preparing for a busy Spring – Summer events calendar giving us plenty of opportunity to deliver attractive bus and rail services that offer customers convenience, reliability and good value.

Special services will operate to the biggest concerts in Dublin including Beyonce, Backstreet Boys, Status Quo, One Direction, The Eagles, Arctic Monkeys, Garth Brooks and Lady Gaga.

Transport plans will also be in place for sporting events including the North West 200, Six Nations Rugby, Ulster Rugby Heineken Cup fixtures and Croke Classic American College Football.

The Giro d'Italia (May 8 – 11) will be a major sporting event for Northern Ireland attracting thousands of cyclists and visitors. The race will be broadcast across the world shining the tourism spotlight on Northern Ireland. There will be a supporting programme of race activities so organisers are encouraging everyone to get behind the race, especially by 'dressing' everything in pink – the official Giro d'Italia colour. Translink's transport plan is currently being prepared in conjunction with event partners and we are looking forward to meeting the requirements of this unique event.

Our long-standing successful partnership with the Balmoral Show (May 14 – 16) will also continue and require special bus and rail operations along with marketing and communications to promote our services as a hassle-free way to enjoy a great day out.

We will work hard to exceed customer expectations and deliver services that add to the overall enjoyment of all of these exciting events. For full details on all our event travel arrangements, click
