Translink staff at Coleraine Bus and Rail Centre have achieved the top Platinum accolade in the annual TIDY Translink Awards Programme – designed to ensure facilities are continuously improving their safety, health and environmental performance.

Seven facilities across the Translink network have achieved the top Platinum accolade, scoring 95% or above in the assessment process, carried out independently by Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful.

Translink Group Environmental Manager Andy Bate, from Coleraine, said: “TIDY Translink is a great staff recognition programme, motivating employees to improve the facilities they work in for passengers and colleagues to enjoy.

“We are responsible for transporting people to work, school, recreational and social activities, therefore if our stations are attractive; it encourages more people to travel by public transport. Our partnership with Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful ensures our facilities are maintained to the highest possible standards.

Well done to everyone involved in delivering such a fantastic set of results.”

Chief Executive of Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful Ian Humphreys said the awards had been a success: “I am delighted with the results and the number of facilities achieving the prestigious Platinum Award this year.”
