Metro Private Hire improvements and new annual commuter ticket
 

Group Chief Executive's Weekly Message

"Metro Private Hire already operates the high profile contract for shuttle services from cruise ships to the city centre on behalf of Belfast Welcome Centre"
17th October 2014

 

Our Metro Private Hire team has been working on giving its customers an even better service.


The coach fleet has been improved, including new livery design and a new promotion has been put in place to encourage pre booking, offering a 20% discount for reservations made before November 30th this year. Metro Private Hire already operates the high profile contract for shuttle services from cruise ships to the city centre on behalf of Belfast Welcome Centre, a market which has seen massive growth year on year in Belfast as more and more cruise ships are docking at Belfast on their routes.

Also of interest is another way we are making life better for our passengers through the introduction of our new annual smartcard - aLink. This will replace the annual commuter card from 1 January 2015 . It will provide annual travel on scheduled Metro, NI Railways, Ulsterbus and Goldline services within Northern Ireland and passengers will also get the added benefit of unlimited travel at weekends across the network.

From 20 October, passengers can apply for an aLink card and new cards can be used for travel from 1 January 2015.
