Chack out the advert in the sports section of todays examiner re. upgraded Bus Station.
Excess of 90% wanted it to stay at Parnell Place. Also, this is the view of European transport ministers.
The argument for moving to Horgan's Quay goes something like this:
People arrive in Cork by train, they should be able to get bus to west cork, etc. on site. Fair enough... BUT,
What about people who arrive in Cork by plane, should we therefore move the station to the airport?
What about people who arrive in Cork by Bus? Sure 5% might want to get a train to Cobh, Mallow, etc., but the majority surely either wish to stay in the City or travel on by Bus, so there is nothing to be gained from moving to Horgan's Quay.
A simple shuttle bus service between Parnell Place and Kent Station will provide for the small amount of people who wish to make a train/bus transition. There is simply no, logical motive for moving the train station and Bus station together.
Let that be the end of it!
