Councillor Rory O’Connor has written to Minister Eamon Ryan, asking for his intervention in a licensing issue that has prevented the Wexford bus service from collecting passengers at Kilmacanogue. Currently, the bus service only drops off passengers in the area, leaving residents of Kilmacanogue without a reliable means of transportation to the airport.
According to Councillor O’Connor, the lack of a pickup service in Kilmacanogue has caused significant inconvenience for residents who rely on public transportation to travel to the airport. As a result, many residents have been forced to use their own cars, contributing to traffic congestion and carbon emissions.
Councillor O’Connor is calling on Minister Ryan to work with Wexford Bus Service and the appropriate authorities to resolve the licensing issue and provide a pickup service at Kilmacanogue. He believes that this will not only benefit the residents of Kilmacanogue, but also contribute to the wider goal of reducing carbon emissions by encouraging the use of public transportation.
“I think getting rid of this small piece of red tape around the bus service could have a huge impact on the people of Kilmacanaogue and cause a massive increase in people travelling to the airport by bus and reduce car dependency ” said Councillor O’Connor. “I am calling on Minister Ryan to work with us to resolve this issue and provide the people of Kilmacanogue with a pickup service. This will not only benefit the residents, but also contribute to our collective efforts to reduce carbon emissions.”
Councillor O’Connor’s letter to Minister Ryan highlights the urgency of the situation and the need for swift action. He hopes that the Minister will respond positively and work with Wexford Bus Service and the appropriate authorities to find a solution that benefits everyone.
