Translink has Christmas all wrapped up this year for bus users in Coleraine with a new £2 festive day return fare available on Ulsterbus town services after 9.30am from 1st Dec until the end of March next year.

For those passengers who want to travel further afield there are also a range of value fares available to make it a hassle free Christmas.

Lynda Shannon, Communications Manager for Translink, explains: “We are delighted to bring in our new £2 Ulsterbus day return fare to entice local shoppers into their local towns and cities across NI helping to boost the local economy at this important time of the year.

“However we also know many people like to get out and about with family and friends at this time of the year too whether it is to buy presents, see Santa or a social occasion so we want to remind people of the range of everyday offers available like our 1/3 off day return tickets on Goldline and NI Railways.

“Over the holiday period we also make some of our promotional tickets available such as our bus rambler ticket which allows passengers unlimited travel on all bus services across Northern Ireland for just £9! It will not only be available every Sunday but will also be available every day between 19 December and 3 January. Our popular Friends and Family ticket offering unlimited travel on bus and train for 2 adults and up to 4 children every weekend is also extended to every day between 19 December and 3 January– now that’s a bargain and a great way to get out and about or get to those post-Christmas sales!

“We’ll also be supporting the local community through a range of charity partnerships this season and would like to wish our customers a Merry Christmas and look forward to welcoming them on board our services,” said Lynda.
