Connecting Ireland is a major public transport initiative developed by the National Transport Authority (NTA).

The aim of the plan is to increase connectivity, particularly for people living outside our major cities and towns.

The Connecting Ireland proposals for Meath services are available below:

  • New interurban bus route across the county between Drogheda and Mullingar/Athlone via Slane, Navan, Trim and Ballivor.
  • New interurban bus route across the county between Dundalk and Mullingar via Ardee, Carlanstown, Kells and Delvin.

  • The final plan will shape transport services for the next 5 years.


It is important for the NTA  to get the views of members of the public – particularly those in rural areas – about Connecting Ireland.

An online survey is available to give your feedback.

This survey is also an opportunity to identify  areas, villages or towns which do not have  sufficient services and/or are not included in the Connecting Ireland plan.
