Ray Coyne, Chief Executive of Dublin Bus met Minister Andrew Doyle, Cllr. Derek Mitchell and Liz Dillon to discuss Greystones busses.
We asked them to run more 84x during the day and to provide more bus transport with schoolfares from Charlesland to Templecarrick School which is rapidly expanding. Many children use the 6 express busses before 8 am to get to the school but must pay the higher fare on this express bus. Dublin Bus will see whether they can provide more 184 busses at this time, as this has the lower fares.
They will try to align the 184 better with DARTs but pointed out that it can only link up at only 1 of the 2 stations which it calls to. It is difficult to get busses starting in Dublin, the 84 and 84x, to meet up with a half hourly DART service as their arrival time will be affected by traffic.
We also pointed out that about 600 houses are being built in Greystones and that there will be more demand for transport. Dublin Bus will examine how to improve services and also mentioned that the 184 & 185 routes were to be put out to tender with defined service levels.
