5 new town buses now in operation in Sligo Town

5 new town buses are now servicing Sligo Town.

Bus Eireann recently launched the new state of the art vehicles that will be travelling along the S1 and S2 routes in the town.

2018 proved to be a successful year in Sligo for the business with a 7.6% increase in passengers for the year.

Speaking to OceanFM News, Brian COnnolly, Regional Operations Manager for the West with Bus Eireann, says it’s a significant investment.

Leap Card usage also saw a large increase going from 6% to 14% after only being introduced in 2018.

Brian says they expect the uptake to be upwards of 30% this year.
