Bus Éireann is to introduce enhancements to routes serving Cork Airport/Airport Business Park and Kinsale from Sunday 30 June 2013.
As part of an ongoing National Transport Authority review of public transport services in Cork, Bus Éireann is pleased to announce enhancements to routes serving Cork Airport and Kinsale.
The new timetable for Route 226A will provide customers with a half hourly service from Kent Train Station via Parnell Place Bus Station to Cork Airport/Airport Business Park. The first service departs Parnell Place Bus Station at 0505 and the last bus departing Cork Airport is at 0030.
Route 226 will replace the current Route 249 timetable from Cork (Bus Station) to Kinsale.
Route 226 will operate from Kent Train Station – Parnell Place Bus Station - Cork Airport / Airport Business Park - Riverstick – Belgooly – Kinsale, giving customers an hourly service from Cork City/Cork Airport to Kinsale.
The first departure from Cork City (Monday to Saturday) will be at 0600 (0700 on Sundays). The last bus departing Cork City will be at 2200.
The first departure from Kinsale (Monday to Saturday) will be 0700 (0800 on Sundays) and the last bus departing Kinsale will be 2300.
The newly improved Route 226/226A will provide 62 services daily between Cork City and Cork Airport, giving customers a wider choice of services to avail of and connecting the three main transport hubs in Cork – Parnell Bus Station, Kent Train Station and Cork Airport.
Route 226 gives customers travelling to Kinsale a more frequent service and additional late services from Kinsale.
As part of on-going improvements of Cork city services, Bus Éireann introduced 15 new vehicles to its Cork city fleet in 2012 following funding from the National Transport Authority. All 15 vehicles are equipped with free Wi-Fi for customers, in addition to other comfort improvements.
Cork city bus customers are also benefitting from the introduction of the real-time passenger information (RTPI) by the National Transport Authority in conjunction with Bus Éireann. The electronic signs provide bus users with up-to-the-minute information on when the next bus is due at the stop.
For customers travelling on our city and commuter services, Bus Éireann offers a wide range of great value ticket options.
Customers in Cork should also note that they can save up to 52% on the cost of point to point annual / yearly and monthly Bus Éireann tickets and also Cork City Commuter Tickets by switching to Taxsaver Tickets. All details are available on the Bus Éireann website.
Full details for timetable changes are available on buseireann.ie or from the Travel Centre, Parnell Place, Bus Station Cork, telephone (021) 4508188.
