Rathangan native Senator Fiona O’Loughlin has called for better bus services and onward connectivity for Rathangan.

Senator O’Loughlin noted that her home village has been trying to get a Local Link bus service to run every day, including Saturday and Sunday and in the evenings, as the transport links are “almost non-existent”.

“Rathangan’s population has been growing and it has many new estates. It is unacceptable that the links are not much better than they are,” she said. “We also need to connect Allenwood and Rathangan, particularly to service those who work at and want to visit Lullymore Heritage Park.”

Senator O’Loughlin went on to say she’s calling for a more regular and reliable bus service for the people of Rathangan “that will cater better for those living in villages and provide better onward connectivity for commuters” and will continue to lobby the National Transport Authority (NTA) “to try and see this rectified.”
