Killaloe-Limerick 323, Petitition to Increase Very Limited Bus Service

This petition had 436 supporters

I am looking for people to sign this petition so it can be sent to Bus Eireann to re-evaluate the Bus Timetable that serves Killaloe/Ballina which is very Limited and Outdated

With a Growing Population between both Killaloe and Ballina with it currently standing at 2,442 for Ballina and 1292 for Killaloe, the bus service that serves these two towns is inadequate. 

Lots of residents commute to and from Work,school,college, university and lots of tourists visit the area,relying solely on, an out of touch, very limited bus service.

With 4 buses leaving Killaloe a day at 07.40,10.00,14.40 and 15.45 and 5 buses heading to Killaloe at 08.30,13.15,14.30,16.15 and 17.30 and no buses on a sunday it doesn't serve the community very well.

With the Last bus leaving Killaloe at 15.45 it really limits tourists on visiting and Last bus leaving Limerick at 17.30, your fairly pushed to leave work on time to get the last remaining bus home.

Especially if your not working in the city but places like Castletroy and Raheen with increased traffic due to rush hour it makes it nearly impossible to catch the last bus.

Also with no bus service on a sunday any visitors staying overnight on a saturday are left with no public transport.

I would propose the timetable to be changed,close the gap between the 10.00 and 14.40 bus, thats 4 hrs 40 mins between the next bus, one's whole day could be ruined by missing the bus at 10.00.

I propose possibly pushing out the 17.30 to 18.15 to accommodate people finishing work at 5 and 5.30 so as to be able to travel to Arthurs Quay from the likes of Castletroy to catch the last bus home.

I propose a late bus at 21.00 to accomodate students from Universities and Third Level Colleges like University of Limerick,Limerick Institute of Technology,Griffith College Limerick,Limerick College of Further Education,Central College Limerick and Mary Immaculate that need to stay late.

I propose having a sunday service so visitors from Limerick and far awide can visit Killaloe thus increasing tourism and business.

Maybe sunday service at 12 noon and returning at 18.00 hrs.

I propose last bus leaving Killaloe from Monday to Sunday to be at least 18.00 so people can travel into Limerick in the evening times.

I propose like the 10 o clock bus that the 07.40 also changes at Bridgetown so people working in Castletroy can avail of an alternative route in the mornings to get to work rather than just going the back roads heading in towards Corbally.

I propose to increase the frequency of buses leaving Killaloe and Limerick, to take a realistic look at how people can benefit from using your service.

I'm calling on all residents that live in Killaloe and Ballina, Neighbouring towns, Limerick and further afield that wish to see changes in the bus service to support me and sign this petition.

The more signatures we have, the stronger a case we have on making changes to this service for the future and guarantee a proper service that serves the people.

When this petition has received a significant amount of signatures,this petition and letter will be sent to head of Bus Eireann.
