Irish Citylink, which unlike its Scottish counterpart is a wholly-owned subsidiary of ComforDelgro, plans to rebrand its GoBus services as Irish Citylink from April. The company acquired Galway-based competitor GoBus, which was established in 2009, in 2022 for €12m. The company says it plans to “fully incorporate the GoBus brand into Irish Citylink,” as part of which the livery on former GoBus vehicles will be ‘tweaked’ and the GoBus logo removed from its website.

The company says the change will ensure passenger clarity on its routes and enable it to enhance consistency across its services, including the booking experience, travel, and post-travel experience.

Irish Citylink was established in Galway two decades ago, with initial daily services between Galway and Dublin. It now operates a network of routes to destinations including Dublin, Limerick, Athlone, Ballina and Cork.
