The British transport company Go-Ahead Ireland is taking over more bus routes from Bus Éireann.

From Sunday January 19th, it will operate several 120 commuter routes.

The 120, a, b, c, d, e, f and x services run in places such as Tullamore, Edenderry, Enfield, Newbridge, Milltown, Kilmeague, Robertstown, Prosperous, Clane, Straffan and Celbridge.

They will replace the existing routes 120, 121 and 123.

The routes will be operated by Go-Ahead Ireland under contract to the National Transport Authority (NTA) as part of subsidised transport services.

The company says there will be a "new clearer timetable" which will include earlier morning services, off-peak and Saturday services every 30 minutes and a new connecting service every day on Route 120c.

The livery on the vehicles will change to Transport for Ireland and the fleet will be made up of new single-deck vehicles that are fully accessible.

However there is no change to fares or fare structures - with Leap cards, travel passes and Taxsaver tickets all still valid.

The roll-out of these services is phase two of a changeover of routes to Go-Ahead Ireland along the Kildare corridor.

The company started running routes 125, 126 and 130 in December 2019.
