A lack of awareness and promotion of the Letterkenny Town Bus Service has been highlighted after a local councillor said he did not know if it was still on the road.
Cllr McMonagle said confusion surrounds the operation of the urban bus as many people are unaware that it exists.
Speaking at the Letterkenny Municipal District meeting on Tuesday, Cllr McMonagle asked for “an update on the current service, if at all there is one.”
“In recent weeks I’ve been asked by people what is the timetable for the bus service. We have bus stops and people standing at them and there’s no bus coming.”
Cllr McMonagle said there is an appetite locally for a working service and he called on the council to take whatever steps are necessary to upgrade and improve the current service.
Cllr McMonagle was informed that the National Transport Authority now holds responsibility for the town bus. Director of Service, Liam Ward said the passing of the motion gives the local authority an opportunity to contact the NTA and seek improvements.
Donegal Daily later confirmed with Doherty’s Travel, the operators of Letterkenny Town Bus, that the service is currently in operation as normal. The timetable is available on https://www.dohertyscoaches.com/coachservices.htmTags:
