A Kildare TD says it is vital that new rural bus services are well-promoted
The provision of evening services on Thursday, Fridays and Saturdays has been approved in 19 counties, including Kildare, on a pilot basis.
Extensions to the Athy-Newbridge route, serving Kilberry, Kildangan, Nurney, Kildare town and Milltown, begin at the end of June.
A decision to make permanent the service will be made by the Dept. of Transport, based on usage.
