Minor route change for route 411 - Cappagh Rd, day time services

0 comments
From Monday 25 November 2013, daytime route 411 - Knocknacarra buses will travel via Lower Fairhill Rd instead of Raven's Terrace.

Evening route 411 services are unaffected by this change.

This is due to a change in the traffic management plan for the Lower Dominic St area announced by Galway City Council.
