Dublin Bus has amended its planned changes to services in North Wicklow following criticism. It is now applying to the National Transport Authority for permission to implement it. The 84, will run hourly as now but in future will go to Blackrock and this makes it more difficult for people from Newcastle and Kilcoole to get to UCD.
I asked that they increase the 84x, which is a good service, to compensate and they will now increase it by a third which is a help. I have now asked them for these to be all day and not just at rush hour and for more. They will also try to allow more longer distance travellers on at rush hour at Donnybrook and UCD.
They are not going to change the 184, 185 or 145. However I asked that they try to make the 184 connect better with the DART in Greystones by getting it to leave Bray 5 minutes later. People in Charlesland have asked for this to help them.
I am pleased they have responded to criticism but want further details of the changes.
