Deputy O'Rourke with bus users from Kilcock at the Dail yesterday
Kildare north TD, Frank O’Rourke has received a commitment from Bus Eireann at a meeting yesterday that it will work to improve the 115 Bus Service to Kilcock.
“In recent years, I have worked hard to improve the timetable of Bus Route 115 servicing Kilcock commuters, which has been successful. However, the reliability of the service needs to be improved," he said.
“I arranged for Kilcock public transport users to meet with Bus Eireann in Leinster House so that the company could hear at first hand the difficulties that Kilcock bus commuters are experiencing.
“Bus Eireann gave us a commitment that it will work hard to improve the reliability of the services and also gave a commitment to the Kilcock bus users that the company would keep in contact with the group to monitor the performance of the service.”
He pointed out that bringing your car into Dublin is now becoming very challenging and more people need to be encouraged to use public transport.
"However, we need a reliable, affordable and frequent service to attract additional public transport users," he said.
