Ardmore to Dungarvan service will operate two return evening services Thursday to Saturday.
Local Link Waterford are delighted to announce the addition of two return evening services on the Ardmore, An Sean Phobal, Helvic, An Rinn to Dungarvan bus service. The pilot service will commence on Thursday 26th July and operate up to December. In addition to the evening services there will also be a Sunday service for the weekend of the Ardmore Pattern Festival 29th July.
This follows the National Transport Authority announcement that 50 new services providing evening and night time services in rural areas have been given the green light.
The NTA decided to proceed with a pilot project and applications for proposals to deliver evening and night-time services were invited from Local Link offices nationally. Of the 17 Local Link offices across the country, 12 submitted applications for funding, and all were approved.
“The Launch of these services form part of Local Link Waterford’s plans to expand public bus services across the county speaking to this paper, Teresa Fennell administrator with Local Link Waterford, said that “We are also working on increasing our Tramore to Dungarvan route from a three day service to six days per week, and have also applied to the National Transport Authority for a direct Dungarvan Clonmel service as we see this as a big gap in bus links to Dungarvan”.
As we continue to develop a network of services for County Waterford we look forward to welcoming you on our services. Fares vary depending on the destination and are set at a maximum of €3.00 per single trip for Adults. Reduced fares apply for students and children over 5 years of age. Free travel passes are accepted on all Local Link services.
