Route 370 Amendment Proposal

The National Transport Authority (NTA) is proposing to improve the level of service on Route 370 (operated by Bus Éireann) and would like to hear your views. This enhancement is part of the Connecting Ireland Rural Mobility Plan which is a major national public transport initiative developed and funded by the National Transport Authority (NTA) as part of the Transport for Ireland (TFI) Network.

As part of this plan, the bus network has been substantially redesigned in South Wexford, including the following new and amended services:

  • 399 – Hook Head to New Ross (new service)
  • 392 – Wellington Bridge to New Ross (new service)
  • 388 – Bridgetown/ Duncormick to Wexford (extension and increased frequency)
  • 390 – Kilmore Quay – Wexford (increased frequency)
  • 387 – Rosslare – Wexford (increased frequency)

 

The modified 370 service has been redesigned by the NTA to complement the revised network above to provide greater public transport accessibility in the South Wexford area.

The purpose of the amendment is to provide the following:

  • Increase of services and hours of operation along the corridor between Wexford and Waterford, via South Wexford;
  • Addition of later evening services throughout the week;
  • Improvement in the Saturday service and introduction of a Sunday service where the NTA considers there is latent passenger demand for travel by bus;
  • Improved connections with rail services;
  • Improve connections with regular rural bus services;
  • Improve connections with regional services;
  • Increase in bus services serving University Hospital Waterford and Wexford General Hospital; and
  • Increase in bus services operating in rural settlements along the route, including Campile, Ramsgrange, Duncannon, Wellingtonbridge.

This route is proposed to be amended in summer 2024.

Details of Proposal

The NTA proposes to amend Route 370 as follows:

Route 370 service will operate six times per day per direction Monday to Sunday on the Waterford Bus Station – Glenmore – New Ross - Campile – Ramsgrange – Duncannon – Wellingtonbridge – Wexford General Hospital - Wexford Train Station alignment. See Map 1.

These services will operate from early morning to late evening and will provide onward connections to rail, local bus and regional bus services.

A number of these services will include extensions to Rosslare Europort, Rosslare Harbour, Kilrane, Tagoat, Rosslare Strand, Wexford Trinity Street, Waterford College, Waterford HSE, Waterford SETU and University Hospital Waterford. See Map 2 & Map 3.

The NTA proposes to design the 370 timetable to allow for interchange with Local Link services where possible, specifically routes 359 (New Ross – Enniscorthy), 368 (New Ross – Enniscorthy), 384 (Wexford – Enniscorthy), 387 (Wexford – Rosslare), 388 (Duncormick – Wexford), 392 (Wellingtonbridge – New Ross) & 399 (Hook Head – New Ross) at interchange points such as New Ross, Wexford, Wellingtonbridge, Ramsgrange & Campile, allowing for onward travel to Waterford or Wexford. There are also interchange opportunities with Bus Éireann service 40 (Tralee – Rosslare Europort) and Wexford Bus services 340 (Wexford – Waterford) and 390 (Wexford – Kilmore Quay). See Map 4.

Please note the following:

The NTA proposes that Ballinaboola and Bridgetown, which are currently served once per day per direction, will no longer be served by the 370 service. Ballinaboola is served 5 times per day per direction Monday to Sunday by Local Link route 392 which connects to Wellingtonbridge and New Ross. Bridgetown is served once per day per direction Monday to Sunday by Local Link route 388 which connects to Wellingtonbridge and Wexford.

The NTA proposes to provide the Rosslare to Wexford segment of the route twice per day in the northbound direction (early morning and evening) and once per day in the southbound direction (evening).

The proposed timetable will be published in advance of the amendment of the service.
