Changes to Routes 1, 2, 3, 16, 16a, 44, 44b and 47

Published on Friday, May 04, 2012

Dublin Bus wishes to advise customers of the following changes to Routes 1, 2, 3, 16, 16a, 44, 44b, 47, from Sunday 13th May.

Routes 1, 2 and 3 will be amalgamated and operate as Route 1. Route 1 will operate cross city from Santry (Shanard) to Sandymount via Swords Road (Whitehall Church), Drumcondra, Dorset Street, Parnell Square, O’Connell Street, Townsend Street, Pearse Street and Ringsend.

Sandymount and Ringsend will benefit from a 10 minute morning peak service on Route 1. This will significantly improve the reliability of the service and help maintain even intervals between the services at all stages on its route.

Prior to 09.00 Monday to Friday route 1 will operate from city centre only southbound. Customers from Santry (Shanard) please note that from 0620 to 0840 Monday to Friday, route 16 will operate every 20 minutes from Shanard Road. They will bypass Shantalla Road, using the Swords Road (Whitehall Church) QBC.

Route 1 will no longer operate via Poolbeg. See route 47 for alternative travel options from Ringsend and Sandymount.

City Centre stops are
Southbound: Parnell Square (stop PS), O’Connell Street, Clerys (stop OR) and Townsend Street (stop CS).
Northbound: Westmoreland Street (stop CD), O’Connell Street (stop OG) and Parnell Street (stop PK).

Route 44 will operate a cross city service from Larkhill to Enniskerry providing a direct link from Collins Avenue/ Larkhill to Drumcondra Rail Station, O’Connell Street, Pearse Street Rail Station, Merrion Square, Ranelagh, Dundrum Town Centre, Stepaside, Kilternan and Enniskerry. Route 44 will also provide direct connections between both Red and Green Luas lines.

Please note Route 44 will no longer operate via Ballyogan, making journeys to the city centre more direct from Enniskerry and Kilternan. For alternative services from Ballyogan please see Route 63. Customers for Dundrum should note that route 14, 44 and 61 will now serve stop CK on D’Olier Street.

Route 44b will no longer operate on Saturdays.

City Centre stops are as follows:
Southbound: Parnell Square (stop PS), O’Connell Street (stop OM) and D’Olier Street (stop CK).
Northbound: Westmoreland Street (stop CD), O’Connell Street (stop OG), Parnell Square West (stop PK).

Route 47 will operate a revised alignment providing improved linkages from South Dublin to the Docklands area. The service will operate from Sandyford (Belarmine) via Sandyford Industrial Estate, Stillorgan SC, UCD Belfield, St. Vincent’s Hospital, Sandymount and Ringsend to Fleet Street. Route 47 will provide improved connections to key business and leisure areas (Grand Canal Dock, Aviva Stadium, Shelbourne Park and Bord Gáis Energy Theatre). Route 47 will benefit from the consistency provided by the dedicated bus priority on Pearse Street QBC.

Routes 16 and 16a will be amalgamated and operate as Route 16. Route 16 will operate a high frequency
service operating at intervals of up to 5 minutes during peak times from Ballinteer (Kingston), serving Dublin Airport. Morning peak services from Santry to the City Centre will be similar to current alignments. These
changes will significantly improve the reliability of the service and help maintain even intervals between the services at all stages on its route. Route 16 will continue to serve Beaumont (Shantalla) on the majority of journeys (exceptions highlighted in the timetable).

Northside customers should note the following, that in addition to departures from Dublin Airport:
From 0620 to 0840 there will be departures on route 16 every 20 minutes from Shanard Road operating via Whitehall Church.

From 0710 to 0830 there will be departures on route 16 every 20 minutes from Collins Avenue via Beaumont Road and Shantalla Road to the city centre or Ballinteer.

City Centre stops are as follows:
Southbound: Parnell Square (stop PP), O’Connell Street (stop OP) and D’Olier Street (stop CK).
 Northbound: Westmoreland Street (stop CC), O’Connell Street (stop OG), Parnell Square West (stop PK).

Please note route 16a will be withdrawn. For alternative services to the City Centre from Nutgrove Avenue, please see Route 14 and Route 61.

These changes are part of Network Direct, a redesign of bus services in Dublin City to provide a more direct, high frequency and punctual service.
