Boyle TM has recently circulated a letter to businesses in Boyle, stating:
Building on the success of the 2014 Pilot Shuttle Bus initiative, which provided over 400 passengers a valuable and inexpensive service we hope that the service will be provided gain this season, with some changes to enhance the service based on feedback:
Service will run three times daily, six days a week throughout July and August
- Departing Lough Key at 11am, 3.00pm and 7.00pm
- Bus to be more visual with external music and departure information
- Internal Audio recording of history & culture of the area
- Ticket price to remain the same ie Adult €1 / children up to 16yrs only .50c cent
