North Tipp Expected To Benefit From Daily Bus Upgrade

Bus Éireann is to create 120 new jobs, thus providing an increase in services across the 26 counties.

This newest upgrade will be funded by the National Transport Authority, through the Government’s July stimulus package.

In the coming weeks North Co. Tipperary is expected to benefit from a daily bus service in Portroe, offering a daily service to Limerick and Nenagh for the first time.

This announcement comes just three months after Bus Éireann announced the suspension of several Expressway routes as a result of financial pressures, latter brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Bus Éireann CEO Mr Stephen Kent expects further growth in passenger numbers in the regions where services are upgraded and claims people will return to using public transport.

Minister for Transport Mr Eamon Ryan has stated that by providing more choice and frequency of service, as a country we can connect more communities and encourage the switch from cars, thus reducing traffic, air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.
