The service is reduced to two times a day on Saturdays and one on Sundays.“Upon your return from Limerick City you have four bus services commencing at 1.35pm with last service at 5.40pm and similarly these services reduce to two on a Saturday and one on a Sunday.“One of the major issues surrounding the return bus route is timing. Many students travelling to secondary schools, completing after school study and those working in Limerick City centre are unable to use public transport due to there being no later bus service,” Cllr McSweeney explained.He also pointed out that Mungret has been promised an extended bus service for a number of years and is still waiting for it.“Mungret has grown significantly over the last number of years with additional housing and new schools and these public transport plans have still not materialised. The improvement of the Clarina bus service will be able to work hand in hand with the provision of improved bus services for Mungret,” he concluded.center_img Previous articleLimerick woman to lead hotel industry through challenging timesNext articleStorm Jorge brings Orange Weather Warning this weekend Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie NewsPoliticsTransportHopes for improved Mungret bus serviceBy Alan Jacques – February 27, 2020 579 Limerick on Covid watch list Shannon Airport braced for a devastating blow RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Is Aer Lingus taking flight from Shannon?
