An MTU student has described capacity issues on a daily bus route as barbaric.
It follows problems on the North Kerry route in recent weeks, where passengers have been left without transport on multiple occasions due to the bus being full.
The 272 route starts in Ballybunion and stops in Lisselton, before continuing to Listowel, arriving at Tralee.
MTU student Conor Hogan says there are problem in the morning and evening services for all customers.
He says it’s a concerning issue for students and commuters alike who depend on the service, and pleaded with Bus Éireann and politicians to find a solution.
Kerry TD and Sinn Féin justice spokesperson, Pa Daly, has called for ministerial intervention to solve this ongoing bus capacity issue.
Deputy Daly said students and workers rely on the service to attend college or work.
He says he and Cllr Tom Barry have contacted Transport for Ireland and the transport minister and says the matter should be urgently looked into.
