Go-Ahead Ireland Moves To ‘Saturday Plus’ Schedule
In the area, Go-Ahead Ireland provide Routes 18, 76/a and 239.
Go-Ahead Ireland will move to what it calls a “Saturday Plus” timetable for Monday to Friday services. The reasoning behind this change is due to low demand from commuters alongside Level 5 Restrictions. The change comes into effect on Sunday, January 24th 2021 and will see a Saturday schedule for Monday-Friday with added departures during peak times. On Saturday and Sundays, the normal Saturday and Sunday schedule will kick in and will return to an enhanced Saturday schedule on weekdays until further notice. The news comes following the announcement from Dublin Bus to move to “an enhanced Saturday Schedule”
The news was confirmed in a tweet by the company:
