Boost for Dublin bus numbers

Radical plans are underway to boost passenger numbers on Dublin buses by 50% following a radical €1billion re-design of the bus network

According to RTÉ, congestion is a growing problem that currently costs the city over €350m a year and is set to hit €2bn by 2033.

The 10 year plan for the network includes cashless fares and enhanced bus corridors with segregated cycle lanes for rapid transport buses.

By giving buses a higher level of priority and improving ticketing and fares, the aim is to cut bus journey times in half at peak times, encouraging more people out of their cars and onto buses, and reducing the city’s congestion.
