Citybus operates approximately 60 routes in Belfast. It maintains a fleet of over 250 buses for this purpose. Operating on the main arterial route from the south side of Belfast and Newtownabbey, Citybus services 1 (City Express), 83 (Ormeau) and 84 (Four Winds) offer passengers more buses more often. These QBC routes are the first of up to 15 to be introduced in Belfast. With specially designated bus lanes, the latest low floor buses and faster journey times, this is fast becoming the way to travel. Park and Ride: Services aimed at encouraging motorists to park their cars and use public transport.
