Default Rosslare to Dublin Airport Bus Éireann Expressway route 2 being shortened to Wexford:

From later this month the Rosslare Harbour to Dublin Airport Bus Éireann Expressway route 2 is being shortened to Wexford to Dublin Airport.
A route X2 is also being introduced (not to be confused with the summer route X2 Dublin Airport to Belfast).

It's going to be awkward now arriving into Rosslare at 18.00 on the ferry from Fishguard and travelling to any point north of Wexford town. When I last did this in the summer there were a few others doing likewise (18.30 Dublin Airport-bound coach ex Rosslare). It will entail taking the Waterford bus at 19.00 into Wexford and waiting at Wexford station an hour for the next northbound bus.

The Rosslare to Wexford section will still be served by the route 40 Rosslare-Waterford Expressway plus a once a day route 370 local (rail replacement) journey.

Likewise have been on buses with hardly anyone else onboard but also several times when by the time all the intermediate stops were served the passenger count was well into the teens. A few weeks ago was on the 12.30 coach out of Rosslare Harbour and 5 boarded at the terminal, ten at the church and 3 at Tagoat. That said there are still quite a few Rosslare-Waterford buses which will take up that local traffic and many of them correspond fairly well with the times when people would be travelling in or out of Wexford town. People in Rosslare Harbour of course also have the train though timings may not suit all journey purposes.

Addendum - took the bus as needed to briefly do something in Wexford en route and continued the journey by train from Wexford.
