New 740X Route: Direct Service between Wexford and Dublin.

Wexford Bus is very excited to announce that a new direct bus service between Wexford and Dublin City and Airport is starting on Tuesday 31st of October.  This new direct service will bring passengers from Wexford town and Oylgate directly up the M11 motorway to Dublin city and Airport, resulting in a journey time of approximately 1 hour 40 mins between Wexford and UCD (depending on time of travel).

There will be up to 3 morning services to Dublin and 3 afternoon/early evening services from Dublin to Wexford.  These new services are ideally scheduled for those that are travelling to Dublin for business meetings, college or simply a day out.  The expectation is that these new services will be very popular.

Wexford Bus is really pleased to add the 740X Route to our network of services, this direct service with up to 3 daily services in each direction makes travelling between Dublin and Wexford by coach all the more appealing.” Commented Brendan Crowley, Managing Director, Wexford Bus.  “As a public transport provider, Wexford Bus has a key role to play in developing sustainable transport throughout the region. One element of that is to widen the number of routes and choice of services for customers. Passengers travelling between Wexford town, Oylgate and Dublin will now have the choice of up to 21 services in each direction.  As always, our customer’s needs are at the heart of our expanded service offerings and we look forward to welcoming more passengers on board this sustainability journey with us.”
