Bus service set to run to Rushmere

TRANSLINK and the Department for Regional Development have announced the commencement of a new Tuesday and Thursday bus service to Rushmere Shopping Centre.

Starting from Tuesday, April 21, Service ‘54R’ which is supported by the Rural Transport Fund, will collect passengers at Blackers Mill at 11am and will travel via the following route: Blackers Mill, Knocknamuckley Church, McClearys Cross Roads, Markville, Scotts Corner and Rushmere Shopping Centre.

It will collect passengers from Rushmere Shopping Centre at 2pm

The new service has been developed to reduce the social isolation experienced by many local residents.

Senior SmartPass holders and 60+ SmartPass holders are reminded to take advantage of their free travel.
