Wicklow campaigners object to new bus plan

A new plan to redraw Dublin Bus services around Dublin and parts of Wicklow is being met with objections by concerned commuters who believe some communities will be left without a bus service.

Today is the deadline for all public submissions on the plan and many campaigners are expected to lodge their objections and petitions to the National Transport Authority by this afternoon.

The NTA posted a report last July outlining their plans to redesign the Dublin Bus service, stating “the report makes far-reaching proposals that will bring about improved services for bus passengers in the Dublin metropolitan area and will provide for a more integrated public transport system.

“Under the proposals, the level of bus service will increase by 27%. This includes services on 11 brand-new orbital routes that will operate on a 15-minute frequency or better, in the north, south and west of the network area.”
