Service

1/07/22Route 307 & 308 Suspension

As a result of Routes 307/308 (Limerick City to University of Limerick and Annacotty) being excluded from the 20% Fares reduction scheme announced by Minister Eamon Ryan combined with rising fuel costs these routes will be temporarily suspended with effect from close of business on Friday July 8th.

We hope to resume when normal market conditions are restored. We regret any inconvenience caused.
