Translink ticks m-ticketing

Rail passengers in Northern Ireland can now use Translink’s new mobile phone ticketing system, mLink.

Passengers can buy, receive and display an electronic ticket on their mobile phone doing away with the need for a paper ticket.

Says Catherine Mason, Translink Group Chief Executive, ‘With Northern Ireland having the highest mobile phone penetration in the UK at 92 per cent and almost one quarter of people using smart phones, we are confident that mLink will soon prove to be the preferred option for train travel.’

Trapeze Group (UK) Ltd helped Translink develop the scheme.
