A meeting of the Board of Bus Éireann took place in Limerick recently, with members of the Board given a tour of the company’s newly renovated Roxboro Road administrative building

The €3.7 million redevelopment was recently completed, and the new building will provide improved facilities for over 200 Bus Éireann employees, including school transport, based at the site. The new building has been developed to Near Zero Energy Building (NZEB) standards, which puts it at the highest level of energy performance. Roxboro Road is home to a fleet of over 100 vehicles including 21 hybrid buses purchased by the National Transport Authority (NTA), which are currently in operation on Limerick city services, and which can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 30%.  

The new building is the first of a number of major investments in Limerick. The NTA has recently purchased 20 new battery-electric double-deck buses for operation by Bus Éireann on Limerick city services, commencing in 2023 and work will begin soon on EV charging infrastructure at Roxboro Road to facilitate this. The NTA is also funding a €20 million redevelopment of Colbert bus and train station in the city.
