Belfast Rapid Transit/Glider Update

The Department and Translink are continuing to hold public information events across Belfast in the run-up to the September start of Glider services on the Belfast Rapid Transit (BRT) network. These events allow everyone the opportunity to board the new Glider vehicle and find out more about the many features and characteristics of this exciting new public transport service.

The next of these events will take place on Friday 27 April at the Kennedy Centre. The Glider vehicle and members of the team will be there from 9am until 3pm. We would encourage everyone to come along, get on the Glider and speak to members of the team.
