Belfast bus routes to be axed in shake-up

The number of buses on routes in Belfast is to be reduced due to a fall in passengers, it has emerged.

Traffic arrangements in the city centre also mean that several pick-up points are to change location.

Translink has said the changes to its Metro and Ulsterbus services are scheduled to come into effect on September 1.

A spokeswoman for Translink said there has been a decline of up to 2% in numbers in two years.

New traffic arrangements in the city centre are behind the alteration of the departure points.
