Bus Éireann admits it has done little to secure customer parking in Letterkenny

The Mayor of Letterkenny has expressed his shock that Bus Éireann has never approached the owners of the Letterkenny Shopping Centre with a view to securing its customers parking.

Despite the bus station in Letterkenny being one of the 5th busiest in the country, there is no parking available for its customers.

A meeting is no to be arranged between Bus Éireann and the adjacent shopping centre oweners with a view to securing bus passenger parking spaces.

Mayor Gerry McMonagle, who has agreed to arrange the meeting, says he is amazed this has not happened before:

The move comes after a deputation fromBus Éireann attended a council meeting to answer councillor questions.

The delegation enquired if the council would support a park and ride facility for the bus station – they were told that this was not in the council’s plans.
