Transport Minister Says Bus Connects Will Cut Off His Constituents.

: 10/11/2018 - 12:39

Minister for Transport Shane Ross has complained that the new Bus Connects plan will cut off his constituents.

This is the reform plan for Dublin Bus, which serves Leixlip, Celbridge, Maynooth and Ballymore Eustace.

In his submission to the National Transport Authority Shane Ross says under the current plan residents in Glencullen village would have no access to public transport.

He said the proposal is causing parents to worry about how their children will get to school.

He also stated that Stepaside would lose a direct route to Dundrum and the city centre, and Ticknock would lose a link to Sandyford.

Minister Ross has asked to NTA to examine his concerns as part of the review of the current plan.
