The Connecting Ireland plan has proposed an increase of around 25% in rural bus services.

The Connecting Ireland plan will address the "poor and inadequate" public transport options for people living in rural Ireland.

The NTA has proposed an overall increase of around 25% in rural bus services as part of the five-year Connecting Ireland plan.

The closing date for submissions is next Friday.
