Minister for Infrastructure,  John O’Dowd

Minister O’Dowd said: 

“I am very aware of the pressures facing people across the North with the ongoing cost of living crisis.  We are facing into a very challenging winter with many households concerned about rising fuel, energy and food costs.

“As Minister I want to support people where I can. I have therefore taken the decision to freeze fares on our public transport network to reduce the financial burden on passengers on our buses and trains during these difficult times.”
