June 1, 2012 (FPRC) -- The new route, due to launch on 18 June, will provide the fastest travelling times between the cities and will feature early morning and late evening services. The Express route will operate six times daily and also will serve Limerick City and Cork Airport.

The company confirmed it also has upgraded its fleet of luxury coaches to be used on the route, uniquely providing passengers with free Wi-Fi, onboard toilet facilities, air conditioning and extra legroom on all express services.

According to David Conway, Business Operations Manager, Irish Citylink: “Our daily early morning and late evening services, which are currently not being offered by any other operator, will be of particular benefit to people travelling to work, college or medical appointments.”

“The total travelling time between Galway and Cork will be 2 hours and 50 minutes, which is significantly quicker (25 minutes) than other existing coach services. Furthermore, the travelling time between Cork and Limerick will be 1 hour and 30 minutes, which will be of particular benefit to those making daily commutes between the two cities, he added.

Irish Citylink also announced today that it carried 330,000 passengers during the first five months of 2012, representing a 15% increase on the numbers carried during the same period last year. The company said the increase in the numbers opting to travel by coach was a key factor in its decision to launch the new express service.

Mr. Conway explained that the curtailment of domestic air services and the rising cost of petrol and diesel have contributed to an increase in the numbers using Citylink services. He continued: “Customers are increasingly turning to our services as we offer a viable alternative to private car and rail transport. Furthermore, the company’s services many large towns and villages that are located away from the country’s rail network, therefore providing a vital transport system for these communities.”

“Unlike many of our competitors, our online reservation system enables passengers to reserve a seat on their chosen service,” Mr. Conway concluded.

Irish Citylink is headquartered in Galway City. 80 people are employed in the provision of Irish Citylink services. Citylink operates four main routes, with 78 daily services. Citylink’s operations include Express services between main cities and airports, and Commuter services serving towns and villages across the country. For more visit www.citylink.ie.
