Bus Éireann SC313, Main St Newbridge, 26-06-2018
The Dublin - Newbridge - Kildare commuter services, along with those to Edenderry and Tullamore, were selected by the NTA for competitive tendering as part of a review of PSO services. The tender was run by Go-Ahead, who are in the process of setting up a new Go-Ahead Dublin subsiduary to operate these services, along with a proportion of city services in Dublin. As a result, this sight of Bus Éireann liveried coaches on the 126 are on borrowed time.
SC313 is an NTA funded vehicle, and may transfer as many Dublin Bus vehicles are doing, but fleet plans for the commuter services are yet to be announced. SC313 is seen picking up with a service for Kildare.
