190 new Bus Éireann jobs due to route expansion

Friday, 11th May, 2018 10:34am

Bus Éireann is to recruit nearly 200 new staff across the country, due to the expansion of bus routes it has revealed.

The recruitment campaign will include 190 new driver positions and additional mechanic jobs, to service the ongoing expansion of the national network.

These roles will be based in Cork, Dublin, Galway, Waterford, Wicklow, Mayo, Navan, Drogheda, Limerick and west Clare. It is not clear as yet how many of the roles will be based in Cork.

The new positions are for an expansion and enhancement of services on a number of Bus Éireann routes nationwide under contract to the National Transport Authority (NTA), and some additional enhancement of services on Expressway routes.
These service enhancements are planned for regional city networks, town services and several Expressway intercity routes. This service expansion will be introduced over the next four to six months, according to Bus Éireann.

Bus Éireann CEO Ray Hernan said he was delighted to announce such a significant number of new roles.

“After a challenging few years at the company, it is great to move into a new growth phase. The majority of this service expansion will be delivered on behalf of the NTA for Public Service Obligation routes - and when introduced, will greatly benefit our customers and should incentivise more people to make the switch to public transport.

“Much change and progress has been delivered across Bus Éireann and Expressway, since the acceptance of a new Labour Court Agreement by staff last year. We are continuing to transform our business to deliver an enhanced experience for our customers.”

National Transport Authority CEO Ann Graham said: “Bus Éireann’s recruitment campaign is very welcome and the NTA looks forward to working with the company to improve and increase services for customers around the country.”
