Parents’ relief as Donegal buses to drop students at campuses on late Sunday night runs

first_imgTwo major Donegal bus companies are vowing to drop students at their college’s main student accommodation on the late Sunday night services.This allays the worries parents may have about their children traveling on public transport late at night, particularly first years who may not be familiar with Dublin, Galway, or Sligo yet.Bus Feda and Mc Ginley’s say that as students prepare to begin their new college term, Donegal parents may be concerned about how their children are getting home from the bus stop. Bus Feda has promised to deliver students to main student accommodation areas in Galway, Sligo and Letterkenny (NUIG, GMIT, IT Sligo, LYIT) with Mc Ginley’s vowing to drop students at DCU, UCD, St. Pats and NUI Maynooth in Dublin/Kildare.A spokesperson for Bus Feda says; “This means that students don’t have to get another bus, taxi or walk too far when they get off the Bus Feda Bus.”James Mc Ginley of Mc Ginley Coach Travel said; “all indications are that the numbers of students traveling to Dublin this year are increasing, we have seen huge numbers of students traveling on our services over the last few weeks looking for accommodation and getting ready for their return to college”.“On Sunday night we drop at DCU, UCD, St. Pats and NUI Maynooth and students find this college drop-off service particularly useful, it’s very reassuring for parents to know that their teenagers are being dropped off at the college campuses in most cases,” James added. McGinley’s have been operating this service since 1986 and serve most parts of North Donegal from Annagry in the West of the county to Inishowen and Derry.McGinley’s operate a daily service to Dublin – for more information check www.johnmcginley.com or call 074-9135201.Bus Feda operate a daily service to Galway via Sligo – for more information check www.busfeda.ie.Parents’ relief as Donegal buses to drop students at campuses on late Sunday night runs was last modified: September 1st, 2017 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegaldublinfeda busGalwaymc ginleyssligolast_img read more
