In 2017, the National Transport Authority (NTA), in collaboration with Dublin Bus, other key stakeholders (including local authorities), and with assistance from Jarrett Walker and Associates (JWA), began work on reviewing the Dublin Area bus network. In July 2018 a draft BusConnects Network was published, and an intensive 12-week non-statutory public consultation was carried out. Almost 50,000 responses to this consultation were received, and based on this feedback the NTA, in conjunction with the working group, reconfigured the network in response to these submissions.
The revised BusConnects Network was completed in September 2019, and was put on public display for consideration and feedback. This second round of public consultation ran from October to December 2019 and the local area booklets and revised network report can be viewed by clicking on the links below.
The key findings from the 2019 BusConnects Network Redesign consultation process, in conjunction with the Choices Report 2017 and the 2018 BusConnects Network Redesign Consultation Report, presents the full picture of public influence on the network design (click on the links below to download the reports).
