Yule love this: party wants bargain bus fares for Waterford this Christmas
A POLITICAL party is asking Bus Eireann to deliver a Christmas present to Waterford.
People Before Profit (PBP) wants the fare between Tramore and the city, and other local routes, reduced to €1 during the month of December.
It says this would encourage people to use public transport to shop in the city centre and would help reduce traffic congestion and carbon emissions.
PBP is writing to the National Transport Authority, Bus Eireann and the Kenneally Bus Company suggesting that Leap cards, or any similar cards, be adjusted to reflect the reduction on all local bus routes for the month of December.
“Local shops, restaurants, cafes, pubs, markets and cultural events would all benefit,” the party said in a statement.
