Wicklow Minister is campaigning for increased public transport services for commuters from Greystones, Delgany, Kilcoole and Newcastle.

Wicklow Fine Gael TD, Minister Simon Harris has been in touch with Dublin Bus to demand increased public transport services for commuters in South East Wicklow.

Minister Simon Harris today said: “Residents from Greystones, Delgany, Kilcoole and Newcastle deserve increased capacity and frequency of public transport services.

“I’ve been in touch with justifiably frustrated commuters from our community who were not able to avail of the 84x bus service due to it being regularly over capacity.

“Since then I have contacted Dublin Bus to demand more bus services for the area of South East Wicklow and especially for the 84x bus route which is a key route for Wicklow commuters wanting to travel to Dublin City Centre.

“It’s clear that there is an increased customer demand in our County I am eager to see this demand met with supply through more frequent bus services.

“Dublin Bus have informed me that their Operations Team have launched a study which will examine how the 84x route is performing. This study is set to be examined at their next meeting with the National Transport Association (NTA). My hope is that this study will address the concerns I and many commuters in the community share.

Minister Harris concluded “Wicklow’s population has quickly increased over the past few years and it is only natural that public transport service increase at the same pace, especially as more and more commuters choose to travel in a more sustainable manner with buses and trains.

“The people of South East Wicklow can count on me to campaign on this issue until the appropriate level of public transport services is made available to them.
