Translink has launched an updated rail timetable with additional services to help festive shoppers and day trippers enjoy hassle-free travel for Christmas shopping, seasonal markets and days out with family and friends.

Commencing Saturday 19th November additional rail services and enhanced capacity will be introduced, operating each Friday, Saturday and Sunday until Friday 23rd December, with further late-night trains being introduced as part of Translink’s Nightmovers services from Friday 2nd December.

Commenting on the new and improved timetable ahead of Christmas, Ian Campbell, Translink Director of Service Operations, said,

“We know it’s a busy time of year for many, with Christmas shopping, meet ups with family and friends and trips to the theatre often on the agenda to create lots of memorable Christmas connections.

“To make this even easier, we’ve introduced additional rail services and enhanced our capacity with extra carriages and our new longer trains, making days out even easier, more comfortable and more enjoyable. With fares frozen at 2019 prices and a range of discount tickets available, taking the train is the smarter, hassle-free choice to make your money go further this Christmas and also enable you to do your bit to create a cleaner, greener environment for everyone.”
