Lagan Valley MLA Paul Givan has welcomed a £4.4m investment in 12 new Goldline coaches.
Recently unveiled at Stormont, the coaches will immediately become operational.
“I welcome this significant investment in public transport in Northern Ireland,” said Mr Givan.
“The launch of these new Goldline coaches will further help to improve the public transport sector for customers.
“The impressive interior and features of the new fleet will make travelling on these coaches more comfortable than ever.
“Leather seating, generous legroom, free wifi and automatic climate control are some of the tremendous aspects that these vehicles can boast of.
“It is important in order to encourage greater use of public transport that vehicles continue to be upgraded and this is another example of growth within the sector.”
