Transport for Ireland (TFI) is delighted to announce a new bus route for Limerick City commencing on Wednesday 12th October.

Route 310 is an emergency direct Public Service Obligation contract which will be operated by Dublin Coach and funded by the National Transport Authority. This route will replace two commercially operated routes, 307 and 308, which ceased operations in July 2022.

This new route will have greater frequency off-peak and at weekends than the previous two services, improved coverage and a more direct route.

Operating 7 days a week, Route 310 will run every 30 minutes from 6.45 outbound and 6.30 inbound, until last services at 23.45 and 23.30 respectively.

The route has 35 trips per day in each direction and will offer TFI fares, with payment available via TFI Leap cards, TFI GO and free travel pass. This is a cashless service and staff will be on hand to assist in the promotion of TFI Leap payment.

Some of the key stops along Route 310 will be:

  • Sarsfield Street (Limerick City Centre)

CEO of the NTA, Anne Graham said: ‘We are delighted that the NTA could launch Route 310 to respond to the recent withdrawal of the commercially operated routes in the area. The NTA is committed to serving passengers in Limerick with reliable and frequent bus routes, ensuring that public transport remains a viable option for getting around the city. I would like to thank the local public representatives, Limerick City and County Council and Dublin Coach for all their assistance in getting this service operational in a short period of time.’
