Carrying 15 million passengers a year in Cork, and employing 596 people, Bus Éireann has committed to halving its greenhouse gas emissions while growing passenger numbers by 30% in the next 10 years. “This will mean transformational change, new fleet, new charging systems and new training for craftworkers in Cork,” said Tim O’Leary, Services Manager, Bus Éireann. “We are already well on the way here, with buses generating up to five times [fewer] emissions than cars per passenger kilometre, we hope these developments will help to make bus travel the first choice for people in Cork.”
