Avondhu Blackwater Partnership have launched a new weekend Night Link bus service which will collect passengers at Araglin and Kilworth and deliver them to Corbett Court before arriving in Fermoy town. The Partnership, who already administer the Rural Transport Scheme in the Fermoy area, are expanding the service due to a gap in local weekend transport and queries from the local population.
Publicans in recent times are seeing a shortfall in trade because of the growing focus on drink driving. Though this is naturally of paramount importance it has however led to a decline in the number of people making their way to pubs for a few drinks and publicans are looking for ways to bring trade to the area.
Damien Tobin, Avondhu Blackwater Partnership’s Coordinator for the Rural Transport Programme commented “Corbett Court is a wonderful destination for couples and groups, especially as they serve quality evening meals, and that is why we are including it on the route. And Fermoy has great night life too so it makes sense to finish the trip there”
The weekend night link service will commence on Saturday night the 5th March, leaving Araglin at 7.20pm and Kilworth at 7.40pm before dropping passengers at Corbett Court at 7.45pm and arriving in Fermoy at 7.55pm. The return trip leaves Fermoy at 11.00pm.
The second service of the night leaves Corbett Court at 10.00pm, Kilworth at 10.05pm and arrives in Fermoy at 10.15pm with the return leaving Fermoy at 12.45pm.
