Youth Forum

Channel your views, opinions and experiences of public transport

The Translink Youth Forum (TYF) is a regional group of young people aged between 16 & 24. TYF’s overall aim is to improve public transport for young people in Northern Ireland. We do this by:

  • providing a space for young people to express their views and experiences

  • connecting young people to decision makers and those who are in power to create positive change

  • represent young people by engaging in consultations workshops with Transport 

Some of TYF’s highlights so far:
  • Engaging with over 1,000 young people in survey responses
  • 2 successful youth summits where 200 young people gave their say on public transport

  • Bus driver workshop

  • 4 regional youth events across Northern Ireland
  • Designing Translink’s new proof of age card

The Translink Youth Forum is delivered by the Northern Ireland Youth Forum, who’s aim is to promote the voice of young people.
