Translink’s Transformative Journey to Decarbonise Public Transport in Northern Ireland

Translink is leading the transport transformation in Northern Ireland, aiming to operate a net zero emissions fleet by 2040 and creating advanced services and networks to be your first choice for travel today, for tomorrow.

This event will give an account of Translink’s actions to revolutionise and decarbonise NI’s public transport system, transitioning to renewable energy technologies and accelerating net zero emissions across their bus and train fleet and wider business by 2040.

Showcasing a compelling innovative case study and panel discussion on the ground-breaking work to deliver the first hydrogen double decker fleet and the first hydrogen refuelling station on the island of Ireland alongside next steps with 100 new zero emission (electric / hydrogen) buses due to be in service next Spring.

Panellists will also share their views on how collaboration has ignited and fuelled ambitious energy solutions to create zero emission public transport coupled with how we need to change attitudes and behaviours towards greater utilization of greener public transport to reduce emissions and free up space in our cities and urban areas for people and active travel, creating cleaner air to breathe for a healthier place to live, work and visit.

Through partnership we can accelerate climate actions within the transport industry and make a bigger impact on our planet for generations to come.
