Thankfully they are using the Leap card, Kavanaghs have their own smartcard, which is a bit odd.

They will most likely use their own coaches but may have to use wheelchair accessible low floor buses as it is an NTA PSO route.

The Naas-Clane townlink service will remain in service.

This new service will be Pick-Up only between Naas and Rathcoffey, and Drop-off only between Rathcoffey and Naas.

That panel housing the destination display is hugely ugly and boxy with it's massive bezels.
