Sinn Féin MLA Cathal Boylan has welcomed a £20 million funding package for Translink announced today by Finance Minister Conor Murphy.
The Newry and Armagh MLA said:
“I welcome today’s announcement by Finance Minister Conor Murphy of a £20 million funding package to support Translink.
“Public transport is one of the sectors which has been hardest hit by the current public health emergency with a huge decline in passengers travelling on buses and trains.
“This funding from Conor Murphy will help Translink address the huge challenges that COVID-19 presents for public transport and keep both staff and passengers safe.
“It’s important that while travelling on buses and trains, people follow the public health advice to wear a face covering and maintain social distancing.”
