Ulsterbus is responsible for most of the province-wide bus services in Northern Ireland It operates twenty-two bus stations several of which, such as those at Belfast Europa and Bangor, form integrated transport interchanges with Northern Ireland Railways stations and 1,100 buses Ulsterbus is charged with transporting over 65,000 children per day to school Every July and August, around 250 vehicles are usually de-taxed This is because not as many are needed for service due to schools finishing for summer holidays

Ulsterbus Foyle

Main article: Ulsterbus Foyle

For many years, Derry's internal bus network was operated as Ulsterbus's Derry City Services It was reorganised in September 2006 into Ulsterbus Foyle In the same way that Translink Metro was used to modernise routes in Belfast the Ulsterbus Foyle network now offers 13 set routes across the city into the popular suburban areas of the city It is hoped that the new service will make transportation in Northern Ireland's second city a lot easier and will encourage people to make use of Derry's public transport system; meantime, regional services between Derry and other towns and villages were rebranded as Londonderry County services, sharing a district manager with Ulsterbus Foyle
