Alderman Drew Ritchie has welcomed an increase in the weekly average of rail and bus passenger journeys compared to the same quarter in 2012.

He said: “It is fantastic that more people are making public transport their first option when they are making a journey. This is no doubt a more attractive prospect thanks to the hard work of Minister Danny Kennedy which has seen fares remaining frozen at the current prices for 2014, new trains joining the fleet and continuing investment in infrastructure. The recent refurbishment of Antrim Bus and Train station has lead to an increase in passenger numbers on both services with the new trains and buses leading to better passenger comfort.”
