The new coach facilities are within a couple of minutes of St Patrick’s Quay and provide easy access to the city centre, bus station, train station etc. 

 

New passenger facilities are being developed at each new location (seating, weather covered stands, passenger information, lighting etc) and set down/parking facilities will be available in all areas. 

  

A public information programme, including temporary advance notice (signage), will be rolled out in advance of the changes so that intending passengers are fully aware of the new locations.

 

Clear maps showing the new bus stops will be displayed on St Patrick’s Quay and will also be available to view on www.corkcity.ie and here on www.transportforcorkcity.ie.  All intending passengers should consult their service provider for up to date information. 

 It is anticipated that the works on St Patricks Quay will be completed by late summer and include the provision of –

 •            new wider footpaths

•            2 way segregated cycle facilities

•            reorganised spaces for disabled parking, loading bays and set down spaces

•            reduced and upgraded coach parking.

Since Thursday April 21st, motorists can access a new northbound lane on Brian Boru Street, allowing cars to turn right from St. Patrick’s Quay and continue straight on, up Summerhill North, which should shorten journey times for traffic heading north of the city.
