Bus and Coach News: Translink taking 145 new vehicles: A £29million investment in new vehicl... #bus #coach #diesel

A £29million investment in new vehicles for Translink was announced this week. The company will be receiving 87 Scania Irizar coaches for Goldline services, and 58 Volvo Wrightbus double- and single-deck service buses for the Belfast Metro network. Delivery is already under way and will be completed early next year. Northern Ireland transport minister Danny Kennedy says: "From 2004/05 to 2011/12, my department has assisted Translink to buy over 900 buses at a cost of £135million. My key objective in investing in public transport is to encourage commuters and other travellers to use public transport for their journeys instead of the private car and to travel more sustainably.”
