Dublin brings in new airport express

A new high-frequency cross-city network of airport coach services linking Dublin Airport with its home city takes off tomorrow, 3 March. Dublin Express will initially operate three routes with a total of 72 services round the clock.

Backers say the service will offer the fastest transfer via Dublin Port Tunnel between the airport and three city stops at Custom House, Smithfield and Merrion Square at €6 for a single journey.

The contract to run the service was awarded to National Express late last year and will be operated on its behalf by Bernard Kavanagh Coaches, Ireland’s largest private coach company.

National Express Ireland managing director John Boughton said: “Dublin Express will transform airport service in Dublin with a guaranteed seat with every booking, reclining leather seats, extra legroom, generous luggage allowance and free wi-fi.

“Booking and payment are easy with tap-and-go and contactless ticketing at the airport plus real time information means customers can track their coach.”

A phased expansion will see additional services to increase frequency and connect more locations across the city, he added: “We have ambitious plans to build on phase one, including developing other products we can offer our customers.”
