The National Transport Authority (NTA) has revised their 2018 Bus Connects plans and have put them out on public display. Residents have until Tuesday 3rd December to make their views on the plans for our area.
To-date Cormac has organised 9 public meetings about Bus Connects (6 - 2018 & 3 - 2019) to ensure that the maximum number of residents are aware of these changes. Unfortunately, while every home in Dublin was meant to received an information leaflet from the NTA, this doesn't appear to be the case. You can download the relevant leaflets by clicking here
Cormac is seeking an extension to this deadline but to-date, the timeline hasn't changed. As before (in 2018), these revised proposals, according to the NTA, aim to improve the efficiency of the network by creating several high frequency spinal and orbital routes. An element of the proposal includes re-numbering routes on the network.
Cormac is recommending that residents mention the elements of the plan that they like and want retained while mentioning the elements that you would like amended.
While some political parties have remained relatively silent on this issue, others are informing residents that petitions are the best course of action however the only true way to have your voice heard is through individual submissions. Last year, 50,000 Dubliners responded to the Bus Connects plan.
While many improvements have been made over the past 12 months to the proposed changes to our local bus routes, there are still changes to be made. Residents have until Tuesday 3rd December to submit their comments directly to Bus Connects by completing or editing the form below or by emailing Bus Connects directly firstname.lastname@example.org If you are uncertain about certain bus routes/servic If you are uncertain about certain bus routes/services, you should log onto the Bus Route Mapper or freephone the NTA on 1800 303 653.
