Following the virtual meeting, Cllr Mulholland said:
“Additional services are being put in place to allow for social distancing guidelines and there are still ongoing talks around ppe protection for customers.
“During this time Translink have seen a 95% drop in passenger numbers but it was welcoming news reported today that the northwest line was up 10% from last week and the Portrush line by 24%.
“Signs of numbers rising are definitely going the right way. The enhancement of services, including the 402, 140 service will continue from Monday 28th June and timetables are being reviewed to reflect these new services.
