Listen: Opposition Mounts To Elements Of The Bus Connects Proposal.

: 09/20/2018 - 11:41

Opposition to some of the proposals contained the the €2 billion Dublin Bus reform plan, Bus Connects, is mounting.

The proposals span the entire network, including Leixlip, Celbridge, Ballymore Eustace and Maynooth.

The NTA says the new plans introduce better infrastructure and bus lanes, improved fares and ticketing, and a redesigned bus network.

But many argue the proposals, which are due to begin in in 2019 - are not women or pensioner friendly.

These people in Ballyfermot and Chapelizod are against the current plans:

The second of two public meetings Bus Connects take place in North Kildare this evening.

Under Bus Connects, some routes and frequencies will change, and some are being scrapped, such as the 66A via Captains Hill in Leixlip.

11 orbital routes, including one linking Celbridge, Maynooth and Tallaght, are being proposed, as is a new fare structure.

The deadline for submissions  is Friday, September 28th.

Tonight's meeting, in Leixlip, is at the River Forest Hotel, from 8pm.
