Residents Urged To Have Their Say On New Bus Connects Plans

The controversial €2 billion plan has been redesigned again, following a record 50,000 public submissions.

The new plan was drawn up after thousands of submissions from people, with almost half concerned they'd lose their bus service and a quarter worried they'd have to get off one bus and onto another.

8 high frequency routes would serve Dublin City Centre, with a spine serving Howth and the north-east city, while 10 orbital routes would reduce the need for people to go into the city centre.

The NTA says it will increase bus services in Dublin by 22%.

Areas that'll have direct routes to the city centre include Donaghmede, Tyrellstown, Sallynoggin and Enniskerry.

While Dunboyne, Mulhuddart, Lucan, Blessington, Greystones would get a rush hour service.

The National Transport Authority has extended the deadline for submissions until Tuesday.
