Public Transport Reform


The Department has been considering how best to deliver public transport in Northern Ireland in the future. In reforming the existing system, we want to ensure that the growth in the use of public transport continues and that the services provided for customers continue to improve. We will also want to make sure that any new arrangements provide the best possible fit for the long-term delivery of public transport. To do this, we need to ensure we comply with the new EU Regulation (1370/2007) on public passenger transport services by rail and by road.
