Dublin Bus is making further bus route changes in Finglas East, Glasnevin, and Drumcondra as part of its Network Direct service cutting project.
Dublin Bus says routes 13 and 13a will be merged into the 13. Route 19a will be renamed the 19 and the current 19 will be merged with the 83.
It says that the 11/a/b will also operate as the 19, but it appears that this effectively means that the route will no longer operate as the 19 only serves a small portion of the 11 routes.
The new 19 will extend to serve Charlestown Shopping Centre, and Route 140 will be extended cross city to Rathmines, Terenure, Tallaght (The Square) and Kiltipper.
Some streets and areas will no longer be covered, see dublinbus.ie for details.
Dublin Bus continues to list the cuts in the no 4 bus as an “improvement”; it said it is including the no 4 to inform customers for changes already made. However, it would not answer in what context it sees a frequency cut of 30% on weekdays and 66% on Sundays as an improvement.
The following buses (some routes part of previous changes) at the below frequencies are due to serve the areas covered by the above mentioned buses:
4 15 15
13 10 15
17a 10 20
19 10 20
83 15 30
140 10 20
