TFI Local Link bus link from Balbriggan to Swords from Monday week next, Feb 19, was welcomed by Minister of State Joe O’Brien.
The enhanced bus services will be available for passengers using the Balbriggan to Swords Route 192, which will provide the first public transport service to connect Stamullen, Naul, Oldtown and Ballyboughal, and will continue to serve Gormanstown.
“It is great to see that the 192 Balbriggan to Swords route will be extended. This will alleviate any capacity and frequency issues as the service will run 7 days a week. It is important that connectivity is enhanced where possible, and this entension of the route enables more people to travel to the surrounding areas and onwards,” said the Minister.
This enhancement 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.
Additionally, the enhanced route will see an increase in frequency and will now operate ten daily return services Monday to Sunday. It will also offer improved connectivity to regional bus and rail services in Balbriggan and regional bus services in Swords, facilitating onward travel to Dublin Airport.
Speaking ahead of the launch, TFI Local Link Louth Meath Fingal, Acting Manager, Deirdre Murtagh said “We are delighted to introduce this enhanced and extended service of route 192 Balbriggan to Swords, formally the Stamullen to Balbriggan route.
“This enhanced service will offer increased frequency and capacity, with optimized schedules running seven days a week. We are committed to serving the transportation needs of our community, while also being sustainable and environmentally responsible to help to minimize our carbon footprint.”
