TFI Local Link Cork is launching a new bus route which will improve connectivity between Allihies and Kilcrohane from Monday 12th of June.
This new route is part of the Connecting Ireland Rural Mobility Plan which is a major national public transport initiative developed and funded by the National Transport Authority (NTA) as part of the Transport for Ireland (TFI) Network.
Route 232 will operate 4 daily return services, 7 days a week, creating a new connection between Kilcrohane, Allihies and Bantry and will offer enhanced connectivity to villages and areas such as Durrus, Bantry, Glengarriff, Adrigole, Ahakista, Ballylickey, Castletownbere and Dursey Sound.
The route will offer a peak-time service for commuters, improved connectivity to regional bus services in Bantry and a convenient connection to Dursey Island and Castletownbere with connections to Bere Island Ferry and the Dursey Island Cable Car.
Speaking ahead of the launch, TFI Local Link Cork Manager David O’Brien said: “This new route will provide people living locally with access to frequent reliable bus services and onward connections on a daily basis. It will mean a significant improvement in the quality of life for people living in these areas. People can now access a wide range of public and social services, training courses, colleges, hospital appointments, banks and lots of other services and amenities along with onward train and bus connections”.
