Bus Éireann to Expand Network of Services in Wexford and Waterford

Bus Éireann to Expand Network of Services in Wexford and Waterford


Bus Éireann will significantly enhance its current route 370 which will see a much increased frequency of services from rural locations in the counties and enhanced direct bus links to Waterford city, Wexford town, New Ross, and regional hospitals and health centres. This new service will begin operation on Monday, September 20th 2010.


Bus Éireann will further develop and expand its integrated network of services in rural locations in south Wexford to increase the ability of people living in these areas to connect to Waterford, New Ross and Wexford using public transport.


These enhancements to services will include:


- Better links to Waterford as a “Gateway” city - Customers will be able to utilise an increased level of services travelling directly to Waterford train station, Waterford bus station, Waterford Institute of Technology and Waterford Regional Hospital.


- A new bus service linking Rosslare and Waterford City via Bridgetown and Wellingtonbridge will be implemented.


- Better linkages to Wexford Town and New Ross – There will be a more comprehensive range of services, providing greater connectivity between South Wexford to Wexford Town, Waterford and New Ross. Customers can also travel from New Ross to a wide range of local and national coach services


- Improved linkages between Regional Hospitals and health centres – The proposed services will significantly improve services to, from and between Waterford Regional Hospital and Wexford Regional Hospital, and to the health centre in Campile.  


These additional services will be funded by the National Transport Authority.


Timetable for the new and improved coach service between Rosslare and Waterford is attached.


Other Information.


In addition, customers can also avail of the existing Route 40 coach service that provides 12 departures daily linking Rosslare Europort, Wexford, New Ross and Waterford City Centre.


Bus Éireann is also currently working with Rural Transport Programme providers in the region to examine how new “collect and connect” services in rural areas can feed into the proposed new network.
