Welcome to the National
The Authority for public transport and sustainable travel modes
Review of Public Transport Services in Mayo
The National Transport Authority is carrying out a comprehensive review of bus and rail services in Mayo, both local and regional. Our objectives are to increase public transport usage in the region by:
• Providing a more effective and efficient public transport network.
• Developing more opportunities for onward travel by improving connections between transport services and co-ordinating timetables at interchange points.
• Providing more direct access to significant workplaces, tourist & visitor destinations, health service centres, shops and educational establishments.
• Improving the quality and reliability of services and the clarity of information describing them.
The review commenced with a 6 week period of institutional stakeholder consultation during May and June 2014 following which the Authority received 31 submissions from a diverse group of stakeholders including local government, community groups, business and tourism related organisations, transport operators and other interested parties.
We are now carefully considering the issues highlighted by these organisations and we are drafting a number of public transport service improvements. These proposals will be put out to public consultation by the end of September 2014. The proposals will be available on this website, with a specified timeframe highlighted within which any individual or organisation may make a submission. Notices will also be placed in the local press advising of locations in Mayo where hard copies of the proposals may be accessed.
The Authority will then consider any submissions received before finalising service plans and preparing an implementation plan to be in place by the end of December 2014. The introduction of revised services is planned for the early part of 2015.
