on

TFI Local Link Kerry is pleased announce the enhancement of Route 283 Currow – Currans – Kerry Airport – Farranfore – Firies – Ballyfinnane – Farmers Bridge – Tralee, commencing today Monday, December 12.

The enhanced route will offer peak-time services for commuters to Tralee, and greater connectivity to regional bus and rail services from both Tralee and Farranfore as well as increased connections to Kerry Airport.

The reconfiguration of Route 283 from Currow – Firies – Tralee, will see increased connectivity in the area with four return trips Monday to Thursday, five trips each way on Friday and Saturday, and three return trips on Sundays. Previously, the service only offered two return trips Monday to Saturday and no Sunday service.

There are stops in Tralee at University Hospital Kerry (UHK), MTU South and North Campus, Kerry College Clash, Monavalley and Denny Street, as well as Casement Bus Station.

Newly enhanced Route 283 is part of the Connecting Ireland Rural Mobility Plan which is a major national public transport initiative developed and funded by the National Transport Authority (NTA), as part of the TFI Network.

“The Connecting Ireland Rural Mobility Plan has been developed by the NTA to increase public transport connectivity for all, particularly those who live outside of major cities," Anne Graham, CEO of NTA, said.

"With the launch of this enhanced route it will transform the local network offering more frequent services connecting people with work, business and leisure activities in the area.”

Alan O’Connell, General Manager TFI Local Link Kerry added that they would encourage passengers to "make the most" of the public transport system.

"Public transport is not only an environmentally friendly option but also socially inclusive and can be a cheaper way to travel. TFI Local Link Kerry is currently working with the National Transport Authority designing new bus routes under the Connecting Ireland Rural Mobility Plan. It is a very positive time to be involved in public transport.

“There are some exciting 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 to employment, 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.”
