Translink officials have met with Ballymoney political representatives to discuss local bus and train service performance.

At the meeting, it was revealed that Translink are ‘seeking customers’ from the borough area to become ‘ambassadors’ as part of their ‘Life’s better campaign’.

Speaking at the event in Ballymoney Borough Council, Translink Service Delivery Manager, Sam Todd, said: “We wanted to provide local representatives with an update on service performance and highlight the latest Translink developments to benefit our customers.

“We have recently launched our ‘Life’s better’ campaign highlighting all the ways using passenger transport can help make lives better.

“As part of this campaign we are seeking existing customers in Ballymoney who are interested in becoming ‘Translink Ambassadors’. Further information is available online at www.translink.co.uk/lifesbetter.

“Value-for-money is always a top priority and we continue to encourage local people to choose Smartcards to enjoy excellent savings.

“For example, a Smartlink card loaded with 10 journeys for travel between Ballymoney and Belfast is £59 – letting you travel in comfort on modern coaches with free WiFi and you won’t need to worry about the cost and hassle of parking on arrival.

“Our yLink youth card for all 16-23 year olds also provides a third-off bus and rail travel along with exclusive food and leisure offers.

“This Easter, we will provide a special ‘Family and Friends’ ticket offering unlimited bus and train all-day travel across Northern Ireland for up to 2 adults and 4 children for just £20 (available April 12 – 27).

“We would like to thank everyone for attending this event and ask for their continued support as we work hard to deliver attractive services for everyone,” said Sam.
