In July 2018 the first phase of Public Consultation on the Dublin Area Bus Network Redesign was launched, around 30,000 submissions including signed petitions and online survey responses were received by the end of September 2018. Over the coming months all of these submissions will be reviewed and assessed. Following that process a revised network design will be published during 2019 for a second public consultation. It is envisaged that the implementation of the final network will take place in 2020. The network redesign can be implemented on the existing road network with some enhancements at key interchange locations.
