Dismay as Bus Eireann to axe X7 Expressway servicing Kilkenny

There is further bad news today for people in Kilkenny who use the Bus Eireann X7 Expressway service, which connects Clonmel to Dublin.

The transport company has announced that the route will cease to operate from next Sunday, April 2. There had been plans to axe the service earlier this month, but these plans were suspended as talks resumed between the Bus Eireann and the unions.

Now, on a day when it was announced that an all-out strike will come into effect from midnight, it’s been confirmed that the X7 Expressway will soon be no more.

“We regret to inform customers that from Sunday, 2 April 2017, Expressway Route X7 will cease to operate,” reads a statement on the company’s website.

Details of alternative connections between Clonmel – Kilkenny – Dublin and Dublin Airport may be found on the National Transport Authority journey planner at www.journeyplanner.transportforireland.ie.
