Take a nap or scroll on social: How do your public transport habits compare to other readers?

You can make a saving of up to 65% by travelling with Expressway instead of by car.

WITH FUEL PRICES rising, we’re all looking for a way to get around in comfort without breaking the bank.

Shaking up your travel routine can be tricky. But whether you’re commuting to work or college, visiting friends and family, or just discovering a new place, the benefits of switching are hard to overlook.

Expressway has released new figures showing that you can save up to 65% on your journey by using their bus service instead of travelling by car. For example, a return trip from Dublin to Dundalk by car costs an average of €31.24, while a return bus trip costs just €16. If you’re travelling from Dublin to Donegal, the round-trip in the car costs an average of €80.84, compared to €32 via Expressway.

Of course, a bus trip is a personal thing. That’s why you can make it your own with onboard 4G wifi, charging ports and reclining leather seats – plus the ability to reserve and guarantee your seat online.  

So, how do your public transport habits compare to other readers’? Fasten your seatbelt and find out below…
