Ian Campbell, Director of Service Operations explains, “We continue to work closely with the Education Authority on the re-introduction of our network of school services to enable children to return safely over the coming period, with a return to our full school bus timetable and an enhanced train timetable from Monday, 22 March.

“We will continue to use enhanced cleaning regimes using the latest cleaning technology and long-lasting anti-viral products providing ongoing protection which means our fleet and facilities are cleaner than ever.

“Whilst vaccinations continue to be rolled out, we are still in a critical period of this pandemic and we would remind everyone travelling with us, including all post-primary pupils, to – wear a face-covering (unless exempt), practice good hand hygiene, socially distance and use contactless payments to minimise interaction, so together, we can keep everyone safe and limit the spread of the virus”.

“We are also joining forces with the Education Authority on an on-board inspection programme, encouraging young people to wear a face-covering to protect everyone.”



Ian adds, “As the vaccination programme gains momentum and restrictions are further eased, we look forward to welcoming passengers back when they are ready to travel with us again.”

Children of key workers or vulnerable pupils who have been provided with a ‘bespoke’ Translink service over the last few months should return to using their usual scheduled school service.

Passengers should check their journey in advance of travelling.
