The coaches represent an investment of £4.4million, largely funded by the Northern Ireland Executive through the Departments for Regional Development and Enterprise, Trade and Investment.
“Our fleet of Goldline coaches offers free Wi-Fi, leather seating, generous legroom, modern interior surroundings, automatic climate control, security CCTV, and tinted and double-glazed windows,” stated operator Translink Group chief executive Chris Conway.
Transport Minister Michelle McIlveen said: “With over 800,000 passengers travelling on this route every year, they will now be able to enjoy an even better travelling experience, with extras such as seat charging points, and low floor accessibility.”
And she continued: “They are also some of the most fuel efficient and environmentally-friendly buses in Northern Ireland.”
“These high specification, low emission vehicles will provide improved public transport service for commuters, shoppers and tourists alike, all of which benefit the Northern Ireland economy,” added Enterprise Minister Jonathan Bell.
