Translink has launched a nine-part film series documenting the real experiences of its staff who have been working hard to keep the country moving as lockdown eases and recovery progresses. 

The series features Newry bus driver Bronagh McDonnell who has adapted to a new way of working while continuing to deliver services for those who really need them.
