The team at GoBé are delighted to announce that we are introducing new services including 5 which go directly to Dublin airport.
 
These additional services have been added to improve on your customer experience. With the new times you will be able to travel with us to Dublin Airport for early flights and back to Cork at night after matches or concerts. :)
 
The new services will be starting on Friday 27th of July.

With Parker at Bus Eireann now, he'll have all the inside info as to what services are busy and what are not and where exactly to target them so that should help BE on both the Belfast and Cork corridor.

As well the choice of Aircoach to opt for a simpler vehicles in the Panther may also come back to haunt them. Not wanting to spend an extra 50k per coach may end up costing them a lot more revenue than expense they saved. 

The fact that this has come fairly soon after Parker ended up at Bus Eireann and many regarded him as being exceptionally savvy when it comes to timetabling and pricing and that Aircoach new MD is so lacking in commercial acumen that they've had to advertise a role to fill that need means Aircoach are vulnerable right now.

GoBus and Bus Eireann know that this is the prime moment to strike. And with a fare cut coming around the corner as well for GoBe they intend to exploit it to the max and I wouldn't be surprised if they came out on top as Jim Burke is no fool.

I know over the last 6 months or so they've operated a fair few of the services in-house rather than via Bernard Kavanagh, are they further reducing their reliance on BK?

I dont know if reducing BK. They need more buses there as new services start soon. I think there is 7 of 9700 owned by GoBus in GoBe operations.

BE continue to be a stakeholder in this service, despite the termini change.

There were rumours of the X8 going overnight but it must instead have been GoBE.
