BUS Éireann have confirmed that services in Donegal will operate at a capacity of 25 per cent while the Level 4 restrictions are in place.
Public transport is not advised during these times. Travel is to be limited within your county, unless that travel is essential – for work, education and other essential purposes.
Bus Éireann advise that with capacity limited to one in four seasons that these spaces should be reserved for essential workers, to observe capacity signage on board vehicles and continue the mandatory wearing of face coverings on all services.
Level 4 restrictions come into place in Donegal, Cavan and Monaghan from midnight.
Routes affected include:
30/X30 Dublin to Donegal
489 Letterkenny-Carrigans-St Johnson-Strabane
“Customers will see the capacity limit of each vehicle clearly marked on the door,” said Brian Connolly, Bus Éireann Regional Manager. “We are working hard to try to provide transport for essential journeys and frontline workers, as we have done throughout the pandemic and will not be changing schedules or timetables at this time.
“Bus Éireann would like to thank our customers in Donegal for their high compliance rate with all Covid-19 restrictions on board our services to date,” continued Mr Connolly.
“We are aware that increased restrictions can be frustrating for our passengers and we would like to take this opportunity to ask for their continued understanding and respect for all our frontline employees, including our drivers and supervisors.
“These are frontline workers who have continued to work throughout this crisis – Keeping Ireland Connected.
“We will continue to work tirelessly to deliver essential public transport services to those who need to travel and look forward to the continued support of all our customers.”
