Women across Northern Ireland have been challenged to get behind the wheel of a bus.

It is part of Translink's Have A Go Days and gives people the chance to find out more about a career as a Translink bus driver.

The company is recruiting for Metro, Glider and Ulsterbus drivers.

Translink chief executive Chris Conway said: "Over 100 women will have the opportunity to attend this unique behind the wheel experience."

Bus driver Elaine Flaherty urged people to take up the challenge: "You realise you're a real lifeline for many people across Northern Ireland providing an important service which is very rewarding."

Translink Have A Go days will take place on April 10-12 at Nutt's Corner Circuit, Crumlin. For more information call 028 9027 7880.
