The National Transport Authority have clarified a statement from Labour Chairperson Jack O’Connor — who was incorrectly informed by the NTA — that Bray’s 145 bus route will no longer run directly to the City Centre.
Mr O’Connor said the following in response to the clarifications: “We looked at the published proposal and formed a conclusion based on our understanding of the report. We then contacted the National Transport Authority by phone and gave our interpretation of the plans to the representative we spoke with — we understood that they agreed with our interpretation.
“The NTA has since stated that we are misinterpreting their proposal. Accordingly, we have written to them seeking detailed clarification of the implications of their proposal. Upon receipt of their reply, we will issue a statement clarifying the position.”
The proposed route changes will have a direct route (Branch E1 of the E spine) running from Bray Daly station to City Centre every 15 minutes.
It will allow access to the city from points north of Bray or to points along the Stillorgan Road and UCD.
The proposed plan includes a direct bus service from southern Bray to Dublin during Rush Hour times.
Commuters in Bray will also still have the option of taking a bus to Bray Station and connecting to Dublin via the DART, due to the 10-minute frequency of the rail service.
