With a wide range of high frequency Regular Rural and Door-to-Door Bus Services to choose from, you can hop on board anywhere as TFI Local Link Kerry covers the length and breadth of the Kingdom.

TFI Local Link Kerry has 20 years’ experience and expertise in the coordination and delivery of public and community transport services in Kerry and operate on behalf of the National Transport Authority (NTA) as part of the Transport for Ireland network.

New Bus Services

TFI Local Link Kerry recently commenced a new five day a week service; the R79 Ballinskelligs – Caherciveen – Kells – Glenbeigh – Killorglin – Milltown – Castlemaine – Tralee. This caters for students, workers or passengers wishing to arrive into Tralee before 9am and return home after 5pm with stops in Tralee at University Hospital Kerry (UHK), MTU South and North Campus, Kerry College Clash and Denny Street as well as Casement Bus Station.

TFI Local Link Kerry are currently working with the National Transport Authority designing new bus routes under the Connecting Ireland Rural Mobility Plan which is a major national public transport initiative developed and funded by the National Transport Authority, with the aim of increasing connectivity, particularly for people living outside our major cities and towns.

“It is a very positive time to be involved in public transport," TFI Local Link Kerry General Manager, Alan O’Connell said.

"There are some exciting public transport developments on the horizon for the county through the Connecting Ireland plan. I can safely say that these new routes will be transformative and will provide access for people with jobs, education, training, healthcare, shopping, recreation and tourist facilities. The design of a sustainable transport infrastructure has a fundamental impact on the health and well-being of people in the community.”

Fare Reductions

In May, public transport services saw a reduction in the cost of fares of an average of 20% as well as a 50% saving for students and it has been confirmed by Government that these savings will continue for 2023.

TFI GO App

On top of the price savings listed, TFI Local Link Kerry have introduced the TFI GO App, where you can now buy your tickets for certain TFI Local Link Kerry scheduled services online and receive a 30% discount on the cash price. Your ticket is downloaded to the App and can be used to travel straight away. No need for printing, just activate before each journey and show your driver while boarding.

LEAP Card

TFI Local Link Kerry are also delighted to announce that they will also be accepting the LEAP Card on specific high frequency services before the end of the year.

“We would encourage passengers to make the most of our public transport system. Public transport is not only an environmentally friendly option but also socially inclusive and can be a cheaper way to travel,” Alan added.
