Translink announces further fare increases: We need fully funded, free public transport!
Translink have worsened the blow from February’s announcement of a 7% increase in bus & rail fares with yesterday’s announcement of the ending of “early-bird” commuter fares. This fare hike, which could see transport costs for some commuters increase by up to 75%, is truly staggering in the midst of both cost of living and climate crises.
No cuts to bus services! Fight for free, fully funded and accessible public transport!
In recent weeks, Bus Éireann and Translink have announced route cuts and redundancies respectively, hitting major blows to the working class on both sides of the border.
