23rd October 2014
Myself and Stephen Donnelly met with Paddy Doherty, CEO and Donal Keating, Operations Manager of Dublin Bus yesterday to discuss how the bus service could be improved for local commuters.
I received a huge response to my online consultation (see below) as to how the service could be improved and we outlined these to Dublin Bus. Suggestions included the provision of a direct route to the city centre, better services to UCD, access to St. Vincent’s Hospital, better bus services for schools and better coordination between the buses and the DART.
Dublin Bus took all these suggestions on board, has promised to examine how to best address them, and will come back to us. It was an opportune time to put these suggestions to Dublin Bus as they are coming into a growth phase, with 100 new drivers being recruited in 2014, and are looking for ways to improve their service.
Once I hear back from Dublin Bus. I will update you.
