Translink is reminding people from Newry to rethink their travel choices, following the announcement that its fares will be frozen throughout 2014. Travelling by coach can provide Newry passengers with great savings to help make their life better, for example passengers travelling daily from Newry to Belfast with Goldline can save up to £107.04 on petrol or £71.62 on diesel per month compared to private car travel. Prices are based on single and day return fares using a Smartlink Card which offers great value for money and a safer cash free payment of travel. According to research by the Resolution Foundation Northern Ireland has witnessed a deeper recession than its UK counterparts, coupled with recent reports indicating that the general cost of living is increasing, passengers in Newry can take solace in the fact that Goldline offers great value for money. Greg McLaughlin, Translink Service Delivery Manager Newry said, “As fuel, food, energy, car parking and car maintenance costs continue to rise we are confident that passenger transport represents the best value travel option. “This is the second time we have frozen our fares in recent years and this is down to good business management and increasing numbers of passengers on board our services. “Our customers regularly tell us that they prefer using passenger transport as it gives them more time to relax, free from the stress of driving in traffic and more time to catch up on social media or emails using free Wi-Fi on board coaches. Greg added, “I’d like to encourage more consumers to go to our website and see the savings for themselves through our Goldline services.” Translink has also launched its ‘Frozen Moments’ competition which seeks to encourage passengers and the general public alike to capture and submit a special moment through a photograph or ‘selfie’ that they would like to freeze in time.
