BusConnects Information Meeting

Cllr John Walsh and I are hosting a public meeting on BusConnects and the proposed changes to the Dublin bus network, on:

Saturday, 30 November at 11am

in St Brigid’s Community Centre, Blanchardstown

The NTA recently announced revised proposals and are currently consulting the public. Local area information leaflets are currently being delivered to residents across Dublin, providing information about the BusConnects proposals specifically to your area; including maps, proposed route lists, and details on how to make submissions. The closing date for the public consultation has now been extended to Tuesday 10th December 2019.

I am concerned that the no.39, no.37 and no.70 are not sufficiently provided for in the new plans. However, I want to stress this is a consultation about a proposed plan, and not set in stone. I would really appreciate anyone with observations or concerns to attend our public meeting and make their voices heard. I want to know do the plans improve your public transport options? Does it make your commute easier? Do you think it will help reduce our reliance on private cars? Do you think it will result in a well-run bus service for the Dublin 7 and Dublin 15 areas?

You can give BusConnects your feedback by going to www.busconnects.ie or alternatively you can send your comments in writing to: Dublin Area Bus Network Redesign, National Transport Authority, Dún Scéine, Harcourt Lane, Dublin 2, D02 WT20 or email consultations@busconnects.ie
