Get To College With JJ Kavanagh & Sons

The first week of college can be very stressful. It’s fun and everything but you’re really thrown for a loop. You have to learn a whole new campus, get along with people you’ve only known for about two seconds, and then pretend like you know what the hell you’re doing as you waddle into your first college class ever. But through all the madness, we can make one thing easier, your transport! 


JJ Kavanagh & Sons will now operate at 50% capacity on each bus to comply with COVID-19 social distancing guidelines. This means that the intercity services have a capacity of 25 seats. Please read about our new safety measures before travelling.
