bus shelters

  • A Castlebar Councillor is calling on Bus Eireann to install shelters at some of their bus stops - particularly those located just outside villages where passengers cannot shelter from harsh weather conditions.

    FG Councillor Ger Deere says bus stops in areas like Ballyvary and Kilkelly should have shelters installed, as it's unfair to see particularly elderly people standing in the wind and rain.

    Councillor Deere has written to Bus Eireann asking that they install bus shelters to provide a better service for their customers....

  • Some progress is being made in the provision of bus shelters across Co Mayo.

    That's according to Castlebar FG Councillor Ger Deere, who highlighted the issue several months ago.

    He called for bus shelters to be provided, particularly at bus stops located on roads outside towns and villages, where people often have to wait for a bus in bad weather conditions.

    Councillor Deere has been informed that a Memorandum of Understanding between Mayo County Council and the National Transport Authority has now been signed, and a list of priority stops will be addressed.

    The Castlebar councillor has welcomed this development.
