The Local Link Cork has announced a new bus service from Charleville to Mallow, which is set to operate from next Monday.
The 522 bus will run seven days a week with four return services per day Monday to Saturday, and three return services on Sundays and Public Holidays.
Stops along the route include Charleville, Newtownshandrum, Dromina, Freemount, Liscarroll, Churchtown, Buttevant, Newtwopothouse and Mallow.
The service will also connect commuters with train services from Mallow for onward journeys.
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, with the aim of increasing connectivity, particularly for people living outside our major cities and towns.
Speaking ahead of the launch, TFI Local Link Cork Manager David O’Brien said:
“This new service will provide people living along the route with access to 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, etc. along with onward train and bus connections”.
