Translink/NI Railways

I thought Id put up a few thigs for those in NI.

If your buying a day return get yourself a iLink Zone card, they are generally 10% cheaper and you can use them on all forms of transport, rather just the train....which comes in handy when the trains are cancelled due to a spot of rain.....I got the bus home instead.

If you have a Smart phone they have the iLink app which is fairly handy, especially, if like me you get on at an unmanned sation....as they dont take cards on the trains!!!

Now that they have Free Wifi you would have thought that they would be able ot take cards on the train!!!!

    As far as I understand it, Translink are due to upgrade their ticketing systems in the next couple of years, so I don't know if this will bring card payments, but it would certainly be good if it does! Nor do I know if it will be just the buses, or if the trains will be getting the upgrade too.

    As well as the iLink app, there's also mLink, which lets you buy a 'ticket' and display it on your smartphone screen. Beats queuing every month (or week) for a ticket.
