Core Bus Corridor - Public Consultation

Core Bus Corridor - Public Consultation

How to take part in the public consultation

The plans that we are publishing are proposals, no final decision has been made on these matters in advance of the public consultation. We welcome all of your views.

Where you do not like a proposal, please consider suggesting an alternative solution or other option for consideration. But do bear in mind that bus transport is, and will continue to be, the main form of public transport for most areas of the Dublin region and an alternative of providing an underground rail system is simply not a viable option for most parts of Dublin.

The public consultation for the sixteen core bus corridors is taking place on a phased basis and will run until May 2019.

The public consultation for the first four corridors has commenced, we are currently seeking submissions and observations for - Clongriffin to City Centre; Swords to City Centre; Blanchardstown to City Centre and Lucan to City Centre.
