Bus Connects - Your Local Areas: Greystones

A bus network designed for Dublin's future.

Public Consultation - Have Your Say. We Want to hear from you


What is BusConnects?

BusConnects is the National Transport Authority's programme to greatly improve bus services across the Dublin region. Dublin is growing and needs a bus network that works for a developing city. Its aim is to deliver an enhanced bus system that is better for the city, its people and the environment. With more buses, more often, to more places, BusConnects is designed to provide a better, more reliable and more efficient bus service for everyone.

You Spoke. We Listened

Last year we held our first round of public consultation on the bus network redesign. The feedback showed us what we got right and what needed a rethink. Based on that input, we've refined our design for the new bus network. We've amended our initial proposals to address many of the issues raised, leading to a better overall network.

This brochure provides details of the proposed bus routes in your area and where they will connect to. It is one of 31 brochures covering the whole region.

All of the brochures and full details of the overall network are available on the BusConnects website www.busconnects.ie

We will be holding Public Information events in various locations over the coming weeks where our team will be happy to explain details of the proposals, and answer any questions you might have. Details of these events are available on the BusConnects website, and will be advertised widely.

Getting around with BusConnects

New network, new numbers (and letters!)

BusConnects will have all new route numbers. That means that although some of the bus numbers will remain, routes will not be the same as they are today. For example the new route of the 16 service will not be the same as the current 16 route.

What about fares?

We will simplify fares across bus, Luas and DART. There will be two Leap fares

With the "90 Minute Ticket", you won't have to pay extra to change between buses and Luas or between DART and buses or between buses.

Bus passes and tax saver tickets will continue to work as they do today.

When is the bus network changing

The new bus network will be introduced in phases. The first phase will be implemented in early 2021 and the full roll-out of the network will take approximately two years. So there will be plenty of time to get familiar with your new routes and bus numbers.

When are the changes happening?

  1. 2020 - Finalisation of Bus Network redesign
  2. 2021 - Implementation of Phase 1 of new Bus Network
  3. 2023 - Final phase of Bus Network roll-out
