James kindly gave some of his free time to answer a number of questions as part of our TFI Local Link Kerry Operator Q&A Series.

  1. From your own experience, what does Local Link Kerry mean to your passengers?

TFI Local Link Kerry is a way of life to my passengers. It helps deal with the issues of rural isolation and it means a great deal to each of them. I think it is fair to say, they would be lost without the service. 🚍

  1. Funniest moment/wittiest comment.

It was a poor morning weather wise.. and I made a comment to a lady as she came onto the bus,  “Tis a showery morning out…” to which she replied… “It wouldnt rain at all on a fine day!!”  😂

  1. If you were stuck on a bus, who would you like it to be with & why?

That would have to be Rod Stewart. A great singer. Some man for one man! 🎵

  1. If you could relocate your route to anywhere else in the world, where would it be and why?

Spain, the sunshine. 🇪🇸

5. Best advice you have heard from a Passenger?

My passengers go shopping and when I help with them, one passenger advised me to bend my knees to ensure I do not injure my back. Great advice! 🙌
