Metro; The lifeblood of Belfast

Metro services carry almost 600,000 passengers in Belfast every week, helping to boost employment, increase active travel and enable access to work, education, health services, shopping and social opportunities across our city. 

During 2018/19, a record 30m passenger journeys were made on Metro and Glider, an increase of 2.5m on the previous year.  This continued growth is proof of Metro’s vital role at the heart of Belfast. 

Translink will be introducing a series of service enhancements on Metro services in early September, simplifying the network and making it more accessible for everyone – this is part of a phased series of developments, with initial changes focusing on north and east Belfast Metro corridors.
