These enhancements are part of the Connecting Ireland Rural Mobility Plan which is a major national public transport initiative developed and funded by the National Transport Authority (NTA) as part of the Transport for Ireland (TFI) Network.

Enhanced connectivity to regional bus routes to facilitate onward travel

Route C2 will be enhanced to extend from Ballinagh to Kilnaleck. This route will continue to service Ballinagh Health Centre, Cavan General Hospital and Cavan Town Centre. Route C3 will now service the Swellan area as well as Redhills, Ballyhaise, Cavan Bus Station and Farnham Estate.

Both routes will now operate eight daily return services Monday to Saturday with three additional evening return services on Fridays and Saturdays and will provide a new Sunday service operating seven daily return services. The enhanced routes will continue to offer peak-time and evening services for commuters and will offer enhanced connectivity to regional bus routes to facilitate onward travel.
