The National Transport Authority says it may consider a community transport service to supplement the BusConnects plan in Dublin.

It comes after concerns from locals about proposed changes to direct routes to hospitals around the city. A spokesperson for the NTA has told the Irish Times it is open to considering a 'LocalLink type service' as part of the network design.

LocalLink provides scheduled bus routes as well as door-to-door services in towns, villages and rural areas. David O'Connor, head of environment and planning at DIT thinks the idea is terrific.

He's suggested there could be a hospital service around Beaumont or St Vincent's, connecting people to the main post office and the employment centres.

He's told the paper there will be a 'real problem' if the city can't develop the bus network.
