Labour Party Local Election candidate for Cork East Eric Nolan has called for the public transport Leap Card to be extended to Midleton. “The current situation is that commuters can use their leap card on the train to Midleton but not the bus,” said Mr Nolan.
“The Leap card will only bring them as far as Carrigtwohill. This is crazy and a clear discrimination against the commuters of Midleton. This can only be by design and we desperately need the Cork Area Transport Strategy to be published and to include this extension.”
“We want people to use public transport, nonsense decisions like this by the powers in Dublin do not help public transport take up.”
