Wexford Bus expands service

WEXFORD Bus is launching an expanded local service with more routes and shorter waiting times.
Managing director Brendan Crowley broke the good news to members of the Borough Council at last week's meeting.
The company's plan is in line with Transport Minister Leo Varadkar's policy of reducing dependence on cars. The new service has been submitted to the National Transport Authority for approval and should be up and running within a few weeks.
Passengers can look forward to an extended town bus service from Clonard to Drinagh with more direct routes, extra buses and shorter journey times. Buses will run for 16 hours a day, from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., instead of the existing 10-hour service.
The bus company is also introducing Leap cards and ticket machines, making Wexford the first town outside Dublin with smartcard technology.
