Irish Citylink has experienced unprecedented numbers of passengers on its services since introducing the €1 ‘super singles’ ticket and the new direct service between Galway and Dublin Airport.
Passengers have flooded Citylink’s call centre, logged on in their thousands to the Citylink website, and flocked to coach stations throughout Ireland in an attempt to secure the cheapest travel tickets on the market.
“We’ve been inundated with inquiries and not just from passengers within Ireland, but also from overseas,” said Cathy Cullen, managing director of Irish Citylink.
“We knew that the public would welcome the choice of low cost ticket prices and while we cannot offer every passenger a €1 ticket, we have alerted them to the fact that we are the cheapest transport provider out there.
“Passengers are clearly looking for transport partners to work with them on delivering affordable, reliable, and comfortable travel solutions, in these difficult times, and we intend to do just that.”
Citylink passenger numbers increased by 30 per cent in the two week period following the launch of the ‘super singles’ ticketing scheme on October 1.
