Nice reminder... just before the start of term
Appreciate the post, but Translink really are the worst bus/train company I have ever come across. It would pain me to give them the money.
I can't see the 50% off Can only see this for third off http://www.translink.co.uk/Special-Offers/Goldline-Third-Off-Day-Returns/
For others who had no idea what Goldline is.... "About us Goldline offers great value, fast and frequent services, in comfortable coaches on key routes around Northern Ireland, to Dublin Airport and Dublin City Centre.

Goldline Express cross-border services operate into the Republic of Ireland linking with the Bus Éireann network."

Oops! Your link doesn't work..
I've tried two from the website, if you book in advance 72 hours notice, you get discounted. so if you have an idea what day you are going to go, book and during the week its around £17.50 return and at weekends £20
This is ridiculous.
Sorry guys. You have book your Dublin to Belfast tickets from the Irish Rail website which will cost you £13.76. If you go back to the Translink WebFare site and select a Oneway ticket it's actually only £8.99 which brings the whole lot to £22.75. That's 20.75 less! Thanks! Edited.
just checked this out Maybe I'm not seeing what you are doing, however if you select a return fare, you only need to select one fare, selecting the Outward and the Return on the same order which gives you the discount as long as you are booking 72 hours (3 days in advance). BTW just be careful, I had an argument a few years ago, had a ticket from Belfast and they were going to charge me more when I went to Lisburn (due to work on the track between Belfast and Lisburn, the line was closed and a bus operating between the two). The manager stepped in and sorted it for me, but apparently they can charge as they have to "account" for the fare at Lisburn. PS heat added, I'm hoping to travel to Dublin in August for a day :D
Democracy ignoring roadblocks abound! Apparently the new bus lanes DO work, enjoy your stay visitors :-)
Walked into town today, didn't get a bus. It was raining.
when i got the the bus stop and a bus was luckily coming down the road... but it went on past as it was full, arms squashed out doors and heads getting breath of air out the window (may be exaggerated), so i ended up just walking, rather than waiting half an hour ( for the next bus thats due in ten mins) for the same to happen again. Thats translink for ya, probably have half their staff off for the Xmas holidays.
I gave heat on this but Translink have shot themselves in the foot by not putting enough buses on today. My Daughter waited 40 minutes on a 3A which is supposed to run every 10 minutes and she isn't the only one I know who's waited far longer than usual.
I love Belfast. Went for the first time this year, mainly to take a friend to Titanic. That itself was just OK, bit the dry dock was fantastic. Have to say Belfast is brilliant, people were so friendly and beat Dublin, for me anyway, hands down! We did the main sites on the hop on hop off tourist bus and Giant's Gauseway. We commented to a taxi driver about how much we had enjoyed our time and his reply was "We love tourists, we just can't stand one another!" Such a shame with the current conflict..... Lovely city.
Heat added. But I will wait a while before I travel over the bridge! Translink have said they will travel at a slower speed over the bridge for the 1st month!!!!!!
Very hot! Just wish it was always this price!
Great deal. This is less than half price
Here, HERE! :thumbsup: Heat Added! :thumbsup:
