Translink staff have played a key role throughout the pandemic, ensuring continuity of service in the most challenging of times. The visit was an opportunity to thank them for their ongoing work.

“I want to commend all those staff at the centre who continue to ensure that public transport services operate safely and efficiently for users, especially key workers who rely on train and bus connections to get to and from their place of employment.

“Translink is prioritising the safety of its passengers and staff through rigorous cleansing processes which is hugely reassuring for all of us. Public transport is something we take for granted so I want to offer my sincere thanks to all those who have a role to play in keeping us moving safely at this time.”
