Mike Culloty of the Tralee People’s Bus Service, received special recognition at the beginning of the meeting of Tralee Municipal District councillors where he was praised for providing an invaluable service for many in town.
Mike took over the service from Tom Sugrue who started it in the late 1980s. Since then has has been driving the 32 seater bus all over town. Mike is now semi-retired and his son David and Matt Flaherty share the driving duties.
The cost of the service – which has two routes – is €1.80 for adults, €1.50 for students and €1 for children.
