Dublin Bus could be launching 24 hour bus routes later this year.

A proposed pilot scheme aims to roll out the service for the 3 main routes in the Greater Dublin area before the end of 2018.

The Chairperson of Dublin City Council's Transport committee feels the capital needs such a facility to fulfill its role as a modern city.

Councillor Ciaran Cuffe believes there's plenty of demand for this:

"Dublin Bus in conjunction with the NTA will pilot 3 routes north, south and west of the city. These routes will operate throgh the night. The demand is not just from party revelers going home in the small hours - there's quite a demand from night workers who simply want to be able to get to and from home through the night, and that is what a modern city needs."

"We're seeing a growing trend towards night time working and I think people are sick and tired of paying a lot for taxi fare and they want to have the alternative of public transport."

"The airport buses operate pretty much throughout the night at this stage, and I think ordinary Dubliners would like to see this service rolled out as well."
