Kilcock – Naas Bus Route 'should connect to rail stations'


Kildare North Deputy Aine Brady has called on Bus Eireann to ensure that the proposed Naas - Kilcock Orbital Bus route, proposed by Bus Eireann, links to the rail stations at Kilcock and Sallins.
'Over the last two years, I have campaigned to ensure that Bus Eireann include an Orbital Route which would link Kilcock, Clane, Sallins and Naas. I am delighted that they have included this orbital route in their Transport 21 proposals. It is one of 12 new routes been proposed. It is proposed that the service will commence in Drogheda via Trim to ending in Blessington.' stated Deputy Brady.
'I have now requested that Bus Eireann link this service to the train stations at Kilcock and Sallins, which would bring better connectivity from a public transport perspective for the more rural commuter in North Kildare.' Stated Brady.
'Bus Eireann have included significant improvements in their level of service for North Kildare in their Transport 21 proposals. Naas, Johnstown and Kill will see an improved frequency of service to Dublin City and City West Complex. A new service to Dublin Airport from Naas is also included. Plans are also included to significantly increase the Kilcock / Dublin service; 32 departures from Kilcock instead of the current 10.' concluded Deputy Brady who has requested a further meeting with Bus Eireann management to discuss their proposal.
