Bus Éireann Enhances Wexford to Dublin Airport Expressway Route 2 with Additional Stops

  • Route 2 to serve Beehive, Ballincor and Jack White’s Cross 16 times a day
  • Arklow stops now - Ferrybank, Main Street and Lidl
  • New stops in Dublin city at IFSC and O2
  • New route through Dublin city centre to reduce journey times
  • Earlier departure time from Wexford for commuters

Bus Éireann has revised its Expressway Route 2 service between Wexford and Dublin Airport to include additional stops, new stop locations in Arklow and a quicker route through Dublin city centre. The changes will come into effect from 25 August 2013.

Following feedback from customers, Route 2 will now stop at Beehive, Ballincor and Jack White’s Cross eight times a day in each direction.

In addition, the service will now operate in Arklow from stops at Ferrybank, Main Street and Lidl to facilitate customers.

In order to reduce delays in operating through Dublin city centre, the service will operate a new route via Lesson Street and Merrion Square, and for customers travelling to the docklands area for work or pleasure there are new stops at the IFSC and O2.

Operating times between Gorey and Arklow have also been changed to improve reliability for customers at these locations.

As part of this, the departure time of the previous 0600 X2 limited-stop service from Wexford has now been moved back to 0550 to facilitate customers travelling to work in Dublin.

The revised Route 2 will still have the fastest coach service available between Wexford and Dublin Airport of just 2 hours 45 minutes. It will also have a short journey time between Wexford and Dublin city (Custom House Quay) of just 2 hours 25 minutes.

Even shorter journey times will be available on the X2 service, which will take just 2 hours 10 minutes from Wexford to Dublin city (Lesson Street) and 2 hours 35 minutes to Dublin Airport. The X2 will operate daily from Wexford at 0550 and from Dublin Airport at 1700.

The revised Route 2 will operate 16 times a day in each direction with services starting from Wexford at 0200 and departing Dublin Airport from 0600.

All vehicles operating on Route 2 come equipped with free Wi-Fi.

“These changes to Route 2 will further improve a great value service offering to customers of reduced journey times on high quality coaches equipped with free Wi-Fi. We thank our customers for all their feedback and look forward to Route 2 continuing to be a highly popular service for people travelling between Wexford and Dublin,” said David Lane, Services Manager, South East, Bus Éireann.
