Secure Cycle Parking

Sheltered cycle parking facilities can give new and existing cyclists the confidence to use and securely park their bicycles.
Translink have recently installed and upgraded our cycling facilities across our bus and rail network, and we have now installed secure cycle componds at Holywood Train Station and Lisburn Tain Station which are only accesible when you purchase one of our secure 'Key Fobs'.
Using Your Key Fob
Present your fob against the access reader next to the door at the facility. This will trigger the magnetic locks to open and allow users to gain access.
The compound gate will open enabling users to enter and secure their bicycles (locking devices to be provided by users) in an available space. Please note that the compound door will automatically close again after a period of 6-8 seconds.
To exit the compound again, simply press the exit button located on the internal post close to the gate. Please note that the emergency exit button must not be used to exit the compound in normal circumstances and only in the event of an emergency.
Internal and external signage has been erected at each compound giving further instructions on how to enter and exit the facility.
We would kindly like to remind users that riding a bicycle within stations or on platforms is unsafe and should not be done under any circumstances. All scheme users must ensure they dismount before entering a station or platform area.
A Translink Cycle Shelter
New and upgraded cycle facilities installed across the bus and rail networks in recent years are well used by both staff and customers alike, and hopefully our new secure cycle compounds will prove equally popular.

Why You Should Cycle
Cycling offers a healthy, flexible, inexpensive and environmentally friendly way to travel for people of all ages while integrating easily into ordinary everyday journeys, 65% of which are less than five miles in Northern Ireland, ideal distances to cycle. Mixing cycling with public transport helps cut travel costs and incorporates exercise into passenger commutes.
