After downloading your Translink mLink app, you will receive a unique PIN number which you should keep secure. We will then ask you to register your details including your credit or debit card number. You are ready to purchase your ticket by selecting your preferred ticket type and chosen stations. All mLink ticket transactions are processed using the highest levels of security.

Once you purchase your ticket, it’s held on your phone until you need to use it. You must activate your mLink ticket for travel before you board the train. If you do not activate your ticket within 3 days of purchase it will automatically self-activate and therefore will be immediately ready for use. We therefore advise that you don’t buy your mLink ticket any more than 2 days before you want the ticket to start.

Your mLink ticket will be stored on your mobile phone until it expires and should always be shown to the Conductor or rail station staff when requested. Please ensure your mobile phone is fully charged for your entire journey. It is your responsibility to ensure you can always display a valid mLink ticket when travelling. If you cannot display a valid activated mLink ticket you must purchase a full price cash ticket which is non refundable.

If you intend to travel beyond your designated station you must purchase an additional cash ticket for the extra portion of your journey before you travel beyond the alighting station shown on your mLink ticket.

Free bus services to and from Belfast Central, Newry and Londonderry train stations as well as bus substitution services follow the same rules and permissions as paper rail tickets.

Child mLink tickets are also available and can be purchased by an authorised adult using our website Children cannot register or purchase tickets via a mobile phone.

    This app is broken by design. It crashes when your phone switches between WiFi and network. It has awful work flow. If you change the date/time on your phone (it's my phone, I'll do what I want with it), the app will INVALIDATE your monthly ticket. When you phone to complain, they well not offer a full refund, and blame you for changing the time. I actually believe this is fraudulent practice

    As a tester for a living, i find this app is very unreliable. I just never know if it's going to work or not when I open up the app. Poor effort by Translink.

    Truly awful app. Lags and freezes. Only got it to successfully buy a ticket once. Needs so much more work to it. Uninstall as it's more efficient to queue up for a ticket than to fight with this app for half an hour to do the same thing

    While there are some really bad resolution problems with the app I have so far had no problems and think its great. I no longer have to queue at the train station for a ticket and just get on the train. The savings that can be made as well are great. Never would have thought TransLink could come out with something this forward thinking.

    Crashes every day when getting off the train and won't open until 5th or 6tg attempt at least to show to staff at ticket barriers so left looking like an idiot and liar and being late for connecting buses/work.shambles!

    Decent app, but not what it could be, it needs a widget/lockscreen facility. I don't know how many times its caught out when trying to unlock my phone and then locate the app and then select my ticket. It also needs the ability to not use your connection when you're not using it, it severely drains the battery in the background as it uses your 3g/4g/wifi all the time. Listen to the customers trans
