via the North and South Quays. Timetables will be adjusted and integrated with Route 15b from
Docklands.

Routes 15b and 74a will be amalgamated and renamed Route 15b. This service will operate from
Stocking Avenue to the City Centre via Stocking Lane, Scholarstown Road, Ballyboden Way,
Ballyroan Road, Marian Road, Rathfarnham Village and Bushy Park Road to Docklands.This will significantly improve travel times for customers.
Timetables will be adjusted and integrated with Route 15a from Docklands.

Route 140 will be realigned from its current terminus at Leeson Street (Wilton Terrace) to Rathmines
(Palmerston Park) via Earslfort Terrace. This will replace Route 128 in the Rathmines / Palmerston
Park area. The timetable on route 140 will be adjusted to reflect customer demand. Key peak journey headways will be improved.

Routes 15e and 15f will no longer operate. See route 65b for alternative services.

Route Improvements
Route 15 will provide full cross city penetration for customers from Ballycullen, Knocklyon, Templeogue
and Terenure providing direct connections to Connolly Rail Station, Bus Áras, IFSC, Fairview and
the Malahide Road QBC.

Route 15 will provide increased travel options for customers from Clongriffin, Coolock and
Donnycarney to Templeogue & Terenure.

Routes 15a and 15b will be extended to Docklands with fully integrated timetables significantly improving
the bus services to and from the Docklands area.

The Ballycullen / Stocking Avenue areas will benefit from significant increases in bus provision.

Route 140 will offer greater city centre penetration for customers from Finglas and Phibsboro.

A morning & evening peak service will operate on Route 15b from Whitechurch via Rathmines &
Docklands.

All our timetables will be redesigned, easier to understand and at consistent times past each hour. Timetables will also have intermediate timing points to make it easier to plan your journey e.g. Route 15 will have a dedicated departure time from College Street operating towards Stocking Lane. Real Time Passenger Information units are also installed at key stops on route.
