Massive shake-up of transport in Northern Ireland

Privatization of transit ruled out…

Transport minister Conor Murphy has proposed to reform the public transport in Northern Ireland.

Murphy said: “I want to make public transport people’s first choice, not last resort. Our public transport legislation is outdated – it is over 40 years since the last major revision.”

The proposals include the introduction of integrated local transport plans, access to bus stations and shared facilities for private operators, improved integration of timetables and ticketing between different transport modes and the regulation of fares.

Murphy continued: “In order to bring these changes about, it is proposed to establish a public transport agency, within the department for regional development”.
