I welcome the announcement by Bus Eireann, Ireland’s national bus company, to significantly enhanced services and timetables on Route 425A, Galway to Mountbellew which will come into effect on Sunday, 17 December.
The significantly enhanced Route 425A 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 425A will now provide a service from Galway to Mountbellew, introducing a new weekend service, expanding hours of operation to offer double the frequency of round trips, Monday to Sunday.
The improved service will provide four daily round trips seven days a week, offering passengers greater connectivity with Galway Ceannt Station and local services at Mountbellew.
Bus Éireann Route 425A will serve Galway, Monivea Road, Cashla, Garbally, Menlough, Glantane, Castleblakney, Caltra and Mountbellew.
“It is vital the public transport is enhanced in all rural areas if we are to provide an alternative to cars and the timetables need to match demand for commuters travelling to work, college or hospital appointments”.
