Fianna Fáil Senator for Monaghan and Cavan, Robbie Gallagher, has welcomed the return to 50% capacity on public transport and seat guarantee for Travel Pass Holders. 

Senator Gallagher commented, “As the country re-opens it is great to see capacity increasing on essential services like our expressway routes. I know a lot of elderly people, and people with health issues use the bus from Monaghan and Cavan for medical appointments.  

“Bus Éireann has issued guidance and it is very important to book a guaranteed seat for Expressway inter-regional travel at expressway.ie. Online booking for a guaranteed seat is now available on all routes.  People using free travel passes can – and should – book online.”  

“I am heartened by the fact that Bus Eireann has also allowed free travel pass holders to guarantee their seat on the bus which is a welcome new development.  After numerous representations made to my offices and from my offices, I am glad this situation has finally been resolved.”
