Translink Youth Forum

Improving Public Transport

The Translink Youth Forum (TYF) is a regional group of young people aged between 14-24. 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
  • Four successful youth summits where 200 young people gave their say on public transport
  • Regional youth events across Northern Ireland (Derry-Londonderry, Belfast, Enniskillen and Newry)
  • FREE yLink cards for 16 – 24 year olds and FREE 24+ Student Railcards
The Translink Youth Forum is delivered by the Northern Ireland Youth Forum, who’s aim is to promote the voice of young people.
