Wicklow Fine Gael Minister Simon Harris TD and his Bray West/Enniskerry colleague Cllr Melanie Corrigan today met with the National Transport Authority to demand it take action regarding Go Ahead’s inadequate bus services in North Wicklow.
“Along with my colleague Cllr Melanie Corrigan, I today met with the National Transport Authority to seek answers as to what action it is taking to tackle poor bus services in Wicklow. – Minister Simon Harris
In particular the services operated by Go Ahead are unsatisfactory and I have repeated raised cases of constituents with no evening time bus service to Enniskerry. In particular I am greatly disturbed by instances of school children being unable to find a bus route home. The situation is unacceptable”.
“It has been a source of enormous frustration to me that despite repeated assurances from Go Ahead that they would improve their services and ensure Enniskerry would have a reliable bus services there has been no change. Go Ahead’s response has been unacceptable and hence the reason I met with the regulator today with Minister Harris to demand action.” – Cllr. Melanie Corrigan
Minister Harris and Cllr Corrigan also raised service issues with the NTA relating to the 185 Enniskerry bus, 184 Greystones bus, and the 145 service to Kilmacanogue. The need for the NTA to facilitate adequate shelters for commuters at locations such as the Bog Meadow carpark, the 185 terminus and a new stop at Enniskerry’s parochial hall was also discussed.
