Hospital Staff Shuttle Bus Service

As part of our ongoing commitment to ease congestion on the Ulster Hospital site and provide alternatives to our staff.  We are delighted to announce that a “Free” staff shuttle bus service will commence on Monday 3 October 2016 for a period of approx. 2 years.

The Park & Ride car park at Dunlady (which is situated behind B&M Bargains in Dundonald) can accommodate in excess of 300 spaces. This opens each morning from 6.30am and closes each evening at 7.30pm.

There is an overflow carpark which can also be used and does not close; staff that finish duty after 7.30pm and have used the am service should use this overflow car park.

The service will run from Dunlady Park and Ride (Dundonald) to the Ulster Hospital. This service will operate on a daily basis Monday to Friday (excluding Bank and Public holidays).
