BUS Éireann has announced the introduction of a significantly enhanced bus network in Limerick City.
This follows a review of services undertaken by Bus Éireann and the National Transport Authority (NTA). The NTA has approved the amended services, which will come into effect on Sunday, December 4.
Amended routes include: Route 301: Westbury-city centre-bus/train station-Hospital-Fr Russell Road; Route 302: City centre-Thomond Park-LIT-Caherdavin; Route 303: Pineview-city centre-O’Malley Park; Route 304: University-city centre-Hospital-Ballycummin-Raheen; Route 304A: Raheen-Hospital-Bus/Train Station-University-Monaleen; Route 306: Ballynanty-city centre-Bus/Rail Station-Edward Street.
These changes will provide an increase in the total departures across the city network, in particular on weekend and evening services. The introduction of Route 304A will operate every 30 minutes and links to the University and Monaleen to Raheen via the Bus/Rail Station.
Later services on all routes with the last daily departure from the city centre at 23.30pm
“Due to the growing popularity of our city bus routes, Bus Éireann is delighted to deliver an enhanced city bus network allowing our current and new customers to make better connections across Limerick city,” said Miriam Flynn, Bus Éireann, Regional Manager, South-West.
“Bus Éireann would like to thank our customers for their continued support of the public transport network in Limerick city, and look forward to your continued custom in the future.”
