Bus Éireann publishes Kilkenny stats in new report on impact of services

Bus Éireann employs 62 people in Kilkenny city and county and ferries 3,900 students to class every school day, a new report confirms.

The study, which was carried out of professional services firm KPMG to highlight the positive impact Bus Éireann services have on communities, also shows there the State transport provider has a total of 40 bus stops across the county.

Nationally, 83% of surveyed customers said Bus Éireann ‘provides an essential service for them or their family’.

Almost two third (74%) of customers said they would recommend Bus Éireann services. While 76% of free-travel pass holders said Bus Éireann allows them to ‘boost their social activity’.


Speaking about the report, Bus Éireann CEO Stephen Kent said: “We are proud of the contribution Bus Éireann and its employees make to the country, and to local communities in County Kilkenny.

“Ultimately, the value of Bus Éireann as Ireland’s national bus company is our understanding of transport needs in Ireland’s regional cities, towns and rural areas. The fact that we provide services in every county gives us a special understanding of what moves Ireland, how to do it better, and more sustainably.”
