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.

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.

 •            new wider footpaths

•            2 way segregated cycle facilities

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

•            reduced and upgraded coach parking.
