Dublin Coach will operate the new 310 bus service replacing the former 307 and 308 routes to UL and Annacotty
By Danielle Lynch
A replacement service for the 307 and 308 buses has begun running today.
The bus service, which is run by Dublin Coach, serves the Castletroy and Annacotty areas, and is to run seven days a week from Wednesday October 12th.
The service replaces the 307 and 308 bus services, also run by Dublin Coach, which were stopped in July 2022.
The news was well received by students and people who live in the Castletroy and Annacotty areas, who have been without this service for over three months.
It is set to run every half hour from 6:30 am until 11:45 pm. The new 310 bus will run from Sarsfield Street out to the National Technology Park located in Castletroy. Stops will include the Groody Road and the University of Limerick.
Passengers intending to use the service are being advised that payment will be cashless at first to promote the ability to pay via Leap Card.
The 310 services will offer Transport for Ireland fares, including payments that will include Leap Card payments, TFI GO and free travel passes.
CEO of the National Transport Authority, Anne Graham said: “We are delighted that the NTA could launch Route 310 to respond to the recent withdrawal of the commercially operated routes in the area. The NTA is committed to serving passengers in Limerick with reliable and frequent bus routes, ensuring that public transport remains a viable option for getting around the city. I would like to thank the local public representatives, Limerick City and County Council and Dublin Coach for all their assistance in getting this service operational in a short period of time.”
