The changes are to be implemented after Bus Éireann regional manager Martin Walsh met with councillors from the Ballincollig-Carrigaline Municipal District who had expressed frustration with capacity and frequency issues of the services in the area.
Cork’s public transport network has become the focus of debate in recent weeks, following the decision to remove cars from Patrick Street in the afternoons to reduce bus travel times, something the bus company said has occurred.
Bus Éireann is now planning to increase the frequency of some services along with other network upgrades.
The 220 service that serves Ovens to Carrigaline will now have its frequency increased to every 15 minutes from 7am to 7pm, and there will be more frequency on weekend services.
The route will be extended to Carrigaline Primary Health Care Centre and there will be a revised routing in Carrigaline to allow for a two-way operation at all locations.
Bus Éireann said they were also taking delivery of additional buses later this year and the company is currently recruiting new drivers.
