Glider….the new, effortless and smooth way to travel, Glide through city traffic and arrive fresh and ready on a modern and high tech mode of travel, providing direct cross-city services between the east and the west of the City and linking into Titanic Quarter. Metro bus feeder services will connect Glider passengers to the Dundonald and Colin residential areas

Representing an investment of over £90m, it will deliver a high quality, high capacity, bus-based rapid transit system that makes way for a transformational change and a more connected City, bringing people and communities together.


The BRT system was designed in conjunction with organisations representing people with disabilities and older people, to make it as accessible as possible.

The system includes a number of features specifically aimed at improving accessibility:

  • 3 sets of double doors on the Glider vehicles – for improved access and egress
  • high levels of circulation space within the vehicles
  • dedicated space for wheelchair users
  • priority seating for people with disabilities and older people
  • audio visual next stop and destination announcements on board the vehicles
  • raised kerbs at the halts and automatic ramps on vehicles to reduce step heights and enable easy access and egress from the vehicles
  • CCTV both on board the vehicles and at halts

    This is a fantastic public transportation service operating in Belfast. It currently runs from East to West of the city with no other coverage, which is a pity. The staff are very helpful at the terminus and the journey is smooth and quick. At the wheelchair area there is also a USB port for charging devices, which is useful and there is a WiFi service which is free to use. Michael Holden
