City Travel in Belfast

City Travel in Belfast If you want to get around Belfast in an efficient and cost-effective way, leave the car at home and take public transport which is sure to get you from A to B a lot quicker.

There are two main types of bus you'll see in operation in Belfast: red buses known as Citybuses and blue buses owned by Ulsterbus.

Citybus services the city and its suburbs and also operates tourist tours of Belfast. Fares on standard journeys are measured according to distance, but discount multi-journey tickets may be purchased in advance from the Citybus kiosk in Donegall Square West [map]. Most Citybus services operate every 20 minutes and depart from the four streets surrounding the City Hall. Information and timetables can also be obtained from the kiosk, open 9:00am-6:00pm Monday to Saturday.

Ulsterbus services the whole of Northern Ireland, so if you wish to travel to any of the further Belfast suburbs or beyond into Dublin etc you need to catch one of these blue buses. You cannot get off an Ulsterbus within Belfast itself. The main Ulsterbus station is the Europa Bus Station [map] at Glengall Street and close to the Europa Hotel, where further information and timetables can be obtained.

Hailing a cab couldn’t be easier and you can catch a council-operated black cab from outside of the bus stations. Always make sure that you can see the license of the driver and, if in doubt, ask. To make sure that you always get a licenced driver use one of the dial up taxi companies such as Able Taxis or Value Cabs.
