Core Bus Corridor - Public Consultation

Core Bus Corridor - Public Consultation

How to take part in the public consultation

The plans that we are publishing are proposals, no final decision has been made on these matters in advance of the public consultation. We welcome all of your views.

Where you do not like a proposal, please consider suggesting an alternative solution or other option for consideration. But do bear in mind that bus transport is, and will continue to be, the main form of public transport for most areas of the Dublin region and an alternative of providing an underground rail system is simply not a viable option for most parts of Dublin.

Public Consultation Phases

The public consultation for the sixteen core bus corridors is taking place on a phased basis and will run until May 2019.

The public consultation for the first four corridors (phase 1) is ongoing and further to requests the closing date for submissions has been extended to the 29th March 2019. The phase 1 corridors are: Clongriffin to City Centre; Swords to City Centre; Blanchardstown to City Centre and Lucan to City Centre.

The public consultation for phase two has now commenced and will end on 29th March 2019. We are seeking submissions and observations for the following phase 2 corridors: Liffey Valley to City Centre, Clondalkin to Drimnagh, Greenhills to City Centre, Tallaght to Terenure, Kimmage to City Centre, Rathfarnham to City Centre.

Details of the proposals and the emerging preferred routes for the phases 1 & 2 are available in the information brochures at the following link.

Details of the phase 3 corridors will be published for public review at the end of February 2019. For a list of the public consultation phases click here
