Bus Éireann, welcomes the delivery of eleven new easily accessible coaches operated by Bus Éireann for the National Transport Authority.  The blue and yellow buses are in the Transport for Ireland livery and include features such as priority seats, dedicated wheelchair space, designated child buggy space, USB sockets as well as complimentary Wi-Fi for passengers. 

 “Bus Éireann announced the delivery of these new easily accessible coaches to Kerry”, said Assistant Services Manager, Kerry for Bus Éireann, Frances McCarthy. “Bus Éireann is an integral part of Kerry and its community, making more than 411 daily trips across the county, carrying more than 900,000 passengers a year in Kerry prior to the pandemic. We expect this to increase significantly in the coming years and look forward to keeping the people of Kerry connected to the who and what matters to them into the future.”
