Employers urged
to sign up to
Bus and Train
Week challenge
E
MPLOYERS across Northern
Ireland are being encouraged
to sign-up to the Active Travel
Challenge for a healthier and
more environmentally-friendly
commute taking place June 1-30.
Translink has joined forces with
Sustrans,
the
Department
for
Infrastructure and Public Health
Agency, to launch the new initiative,
which coincides with Bus and
Train Week 2019, Translink’s annual
celebration of public transport, which
gets underway on Monday, June 3.
Now in its fourth year, Bus and
Train Week is one of the highlights in
Translink’s year, a Northern Irelandwide celebration of bus and train
services. The week will feature a
number of promotional fares across all
services – Metro/Glider, Foyle Metro,
Ulsterbus, Goldline and NI Railways –
to encourage even more people to try
the bus and train.
It is also a week which highlights
the vital role public transport plays
in the economic success of the region
and improving quality of life. With
over 84 million journeys recorded
on Translink services during 2018/19,
there’s never been a better time to
use public transport and boost your
active travel credentials!
Throughout June, employers are
asked to encourage staff to leave the
car at home and walk, cycle or take
public transport for at least some of
their journeys to, from and during
work. Participants log their ‘active
travel’ journeys online and can
compete with colleagues and other
companies to see who makes the most
journeys.
Each week in June will have a
different ‘active travel’ theme, with a
range of prizes and incentives up for
grabs to motivate employees to join
the challenge.
Challenge registration is free and
there are a range of fantastic prizes up
for grabs including shopping vouchers,
sports watches and Translink tickets.
