Please find attached details of changes to route 76/76a/76b & 210 as part of Network Direct, a redesign of bus services in the Dublin area.
Following a period of Consultation Dublin Bus is pleased to announce that it will be introducing a series of service revisions for the Tallaght, Chapelizod, North Clondalkin and Blanchardstown areas covering the existing Routes 76/76a/76b and 210 from Sunday 15th April 2012. These revisions are part of Network Direct a redesign of bus services in Dublin City.
Route 76 and 76b will be amalgamated and will operate as a revised Route 76. All journeys will operate from The Square, Tallaght to Chapelizod via Liffey Valley Shopping Centre and Ballyfermot. The bus stop for this revised service will be located at the Western Side of Liffey Valley Shopping Centre (Near the Vue Cinema), which is also served by the high frequency, cross city Route 40, which travels to Finglas Village and the orbital Route 239, which provides links to Lucan and the Blanchardstown Centre.
As a result of the service redesign, the revised route will be more reliable, direct and will operate customer focused clock face timetables. These significant improvements have been undertaken to make customer timetables easier to understand and will ensure greater ease in planning journeys.
Route 76a will connect The Square, Tallaght with The Blanchardstown Centre. The service will be more direct and will operate via Ballyfermot and the M50 and Blanchardstown Village to the bus interchange in The Blanchardstown Centre. Connections can be made here to Ballycoolin Industrial Park. Click here for service information on the connecting routes (17a/37/39/39a/238/270).
