So I bought a Translink go card yesterday. Up to now I’d been using paper weekly tickets, but because I work at home on Wednesdays, this wasn’t the most cost-effective solution. 10-trip savers would have been the best option, except that I sometimes catch the train. So go card it is. My first experience with the go card was good for me, but not so good for Translink: the card readers on the bus were not operational. Free ride. I love the go card.
