The organisers of the 2014 Deep RiverRock Belfast City Marathon have set up a brand new Park & Ride system operating from five key areas across Northern Ireland for this year’s event.
Organised in partnership with official transport partner Translink, five key towns have been selected for the first year to trial the scheme following research on maximum participation numbers in the event.
All journeys will include a return fare as well as a special marathon discount on the ticket price.
Roy Sloan, Translink Service Delivery Manager said: “As official transport partner for the Deep RiverRock Belfast City Marathon, we are pleased to deliver this new Park & Ride service following requests from race participants.”
The chosen towns for the first year include Bangor, Lurgan, Lisburn, Ballymena and Antrim.
All participants are guaranteed to arrive no later than 8am at the City Hall and departing buses will leave from Ormeau Embankment (Finish Area) at 1.30pm.
