New Bus Route for Mahon Point

FYI for post lockdown!  Bus Eireann has updated some bus routes in January 2021 including a new route (212) for Mahon Point!

Bus Eireann says the increased frequency and extra services will provide links to the wider public transport network.

However, under current Covid-19 restrictions – capacity is down by 25 per cent and public transport should only be used for essential journeys. You must wear a mask on public transport.
