The bus corridor at College Green will be in operation 24/7 from later this month.

Dublin City Council is increasing its hours from 7am to 7pm Monday to Friday, to round the clock.

The council's new traffic management plan begins on the 29th of May and also includes reduced taxi spaces in Foster Place.

The College Green Pathfinder Project will help alleviate public transport congestion in the city core, with the extension of the current College Green bus corridor hours, which at present operates from Monday to Friday 7am to 7pm, to a 7-day, 24 hour bus corridor, prioritising public transport at all times. This change comes into effect from May 29th.

Lord Mayor of Dublin Caroline Conroy says: "This Pathfinder project will enhance the often overlooked area of Foster Place.

"The traffic management measures will improve public transport times, as well as creating a more relaxing and inviting environment to enjoy our historic city centre."

Minister for Transport Eamon Ryan says: "I am delighted to see this launch of the College Green Pathfinder Project – the first steps in delivering a long-awaited and innovative reimagining of the city core. This is the way all of the best cities in the world are moving – making more space for people, for active travel and for public transport and relieving our city centres of choking traffic.

"The Pathfinder Programme is all about accelerating transport projects that can deliver tangible and sustainable changes for communities and these interventions will do just that; contributing towards a more liveable and enjoyable city."
