Carlow Town Bus on track for 30th July start date

The new service was scheduled to start today (Sunday)

Carlow’s gearing up for the official start date of it’s new Town Bus service.

Today (Sunday 16th) was named as the first day of the new service when it was trialed at the end of last month.

However KCLR understands issues with recruiting and training drivers resulted in another delay.

The National Transport Authority now says a revised and improved service will be launched by Transport Minister Eamon Ryan on Thursday week the 27th of July.

While the routes will be operational three days later on Sunday (30th July).

Local Cllr John Cassin is welcoming the news that the start date has been confirmed and says he hopes it will have a calming effect on the traffic issues in the town.
