New bus routes need to be used, says councillor

New bus routes introduced recently will need to have good usage if they are to be maintained, a local councillor has warned.

Communities across the west were delighted when new routes were announced just before Christmas, but one councillor says that getting routes is one thing and maintaining them is another..

David Collins said that he is aware that the new Mountbellew to Galway bus route is crucial for those communities it serves, but that low numbers may see routes discontinued.

The service began on December 17, but Galway County Councillor David Collins has said it seems as though many people are unaware of it.

He says a lot of work has gone into getting the seven-day service up and running from Mountbellew to the city.

Starting in Mountbellew, the bus stops in Caltra, Castleblakney, Glantane, Menlough, Garbally, Mulagh Hill, Monivea, Roundfield, Cussaun Cross, Moor Park, Cashla, Carnmore, Donnelly Cross, Monivea Rd, ATU Cluine Mhuire, Wellpark, College Rd, and the final stop at Galway Bus station.
