“This is an exciting time for public transport in the North West. We are already engaging with the public on plans for the new North-West Multimodal Transport Hub, continue to make good progress on the Derry~Londonderry Railway Line upgrade and are investing in new bus & coach fleet.

“As we look ahead in 2017, we have ambitious plans for bus services in the North-West giving them a fresh and unique identity that local people can really connect with and be proud of.

“As well as the stylish ‘new-look’, we are planning service enhancements, better service integration, new tickets, bus stops and directional signage. Throughout the year, we will be further engaging with the public on these plans to ensure we make Translink services your First Choice for Travel in Northern Ireland,” said Alan.
