From here in Bangor, I take the train for anything in the city centre. Read the paper on the way. Or heading to the airport, free journey there and back and no parking costs. Couldn't whack it with a big stick. Bit of a shame you can't take the train to the International (or Dublin airport for that...

So you just keep paying the bus fair?

Well then you should definitely stop paying the bus fair.
