“NI Railways, Ulsterbus and Goldline also have a third-off day return journeys after 9.30am for affordable days out across the province.  Or choose our £9.50 Bus Rambler Ticket (£4.75 child) for day travel after 9.15am, bringing you to many top attractions in Northern Ireland. 

“We wish all our customers a Happy Easter and look forward to welcoming them on-board our services this spring,” said Claire.
