NTA Publishes Latest Changes To Bus Connects Plan

The new €2 billion 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.

The National Transport Authority has published it's new Dublin Area Bus Network plan as part of BusConnects.

It's expected to be implemented in phases starting next year and will see a 23 per cent increase in services.

There will also be new connections and a number of routes will start operating 24 hours a day.

The final version follows 72-thousand submissions and three rounds of public consultation.

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.

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.
