More Expressway services connecting Galway with Dublin Airport, Cork, Ballina

Bus Eireann is introducing additional Expressway services connecting Galway with Dublin Airport, Cork, and Ballina from tomorrow.

Additional Expressway bus services across nine different routes around the country are being brought in from Sunday, September 13, including three serving Galway.

Bus Eireann has been steadily increasing the number of Expressway services it has been operating in recent weeks, as intercity services have been overwhelmed.

COVID-19 passenger restrictions have meant that since services resumed after lockdown, expressway buses are often already full leaving the station.

This had a heavy impact on commuters seeking to travel between the other towns along the routes, as they are often unable to board.

From Sunday, additional buses will run on routes X8, X12, 20/X20, 23 , 40 , 51,52 and 100x.

This follows on from a similar expansion of services on routes 2, 4/X4, 22, 30 , 32 , 40 and 64 last Sunday, September 6.
