Translink announces Easter holiday timetables for trains and buses

Translink has announced that holiday timetables will operate on Easter Monday and Tuesday, for those considering a day out or a short trip.

Special family trains, which are now available for online booking, will also be running to Portrush on Easter Monday and Easter Tuesday, leaving Belfast Lanyon Place at 9.50am and returning at 5.37pm.
