Kilkenny will soon be showing the rest of the country how it’s done when it comes to public transport.
That’s the aim behind a unique transport conference and workshop scheduled to take place in the city next month.
iROUTE is being organised by Kilkenny LEADER Partnership, the county council, and Ring-a-Link.
LEADER’s Declan Rice told KCLR News they’ll be developing a more joined-up approach to transport locally, and he says they’ll be concentrating on the city service first.
At the moment, the service in the city is being provided by Ring-A-Link, but a long-term provider is going to be looked for in the near future when it’s put to tender.
The two-day event is taking place on the 27th and 28th of June in the Parade Tower, Kilkenny Castle.
Anne Graham, CEO of the National Transport Authority will be one of those attending, along with international experts from countries including Holland, Denmark and Belgium.
