Dublin Bus welcomes launch Core Bus Corridors Project public consultation

Published on Thursday, November 15, 2018

Yesterday the National Transport Authority (NTA) launched its public consultation for phase one of the Core Bus Corridors Project. The core bus corridor project aims to deliver 230kms of dedicated bus lanes and 200kms of cycle tracks along 16 of the busiest corridors in Dublin. The focus of the Core Bus Corridors project is the reduction of journey times across the core bus network. It is proposed to achieve this through the creation of bus lanes and other priority measures which are needed to make the bus system operate more efficiently, consistently and punctually. 

Public consultation of the 16 core bus corridors will take place over a phased basis starting from 14 November 2018 and will run until May 2019. The first four corridors which have now gone to public consultation are:

  1. Blanchardstown to city centre
  2. Clongriffin to city centre
  3. Lucan to city centre
  4. Swords to city centre

Dublin Bus CEO, Ray Coyne, welcomed the announcement; “This is good news for Dublin, our customers and the city as a whole. These proposals will reduce journey times, make services more consistent and improve the customer experience. Dublin Bus welcomes and is supportive of the two billion euro-investment commitment from Government and the NTA.  With over two billion euro in investment committed, we now have the opportunity to shape bus transport for the next 20 years..”

Phase two will get underway in mid-January and will run until the end of March featuring the following six corridors:

  • Liffey Valley to City Centre
  • Clondalkin to Drimnagh
  • Greenhills to City Centre
  • Tallaght to Terenure
  • Kimmage to City Centre
