The BusConnects programme aims to transform Dublin’s bus system, with the Core Bus Corridor project providing 230kms of dedicated bus lanes and 200km of cycle lanes on sixteen of the busiest bus corridors in and out of the city centre. This project is fundamental to addressing the congestion issues in the Dublin region with the population due to grow by 25% by 2040, bringing it to almost 1.55m.
The National Transport Authority (NTA) has today unveiled details of phase one of the BusConnects Core Bus Corridors project with the publication of the Emerging Preferred routes for four of the sixteen previously announced routes.
A range of additional materials and resources relating to the proposed new bus services under the Dublin Area Bus Network Review plan are now available at BusConnects.ie. These materials have been prepared as part of the public consultation process that is now underway.
National Transport Authority (NTA) has published its Dublin Area Bus Network Redesign Public Consultation report. Under the proposals, the level of bus service will increase by 27%. This includes services on 11 brand-new orbital routes that will operate on a 15-minute frequency or better, in the north, south and west of the network area.
The National Transport Authority has today published the Core Bus Corridors Project report. This discussion document sets out draft proposals to vastly improve bus journey times and cycling priority along an increasing number of congested corridors in the Dublin region.
