Transport Authority Recommends Dublin Bus Retains Routes

It's been recommended that Dublin Bus doesn't lose control of any more of its routes.

A private firm, Go Ahead, is taking over 24 existing routes, but the National Transport Authority says no further routes should be put out to tender.

The proposal is contained in documents published today for public consultation on the running of bus services up until 2024.

The National Transport Authority said it considers that the "general interest would be best served in the coming five years by Dublin Bus retaining the same level of services as they will have in November 2019".

Dublin Bus CEO, Ray Coyne, said he believes the endorsement "reflects the success Dublin Bus has delivered and means we would continue to operate all Public Service Obligation routes in Dublin for the next five years, excluding those previously tendered in 2017."

"As Ireland’s largest public transport provider, our employees are committed to delivering a safe, reliable and efficient network of services which meet the needs of the people of Dublin", he said.

A final decision on the operating of Dublin's bus routes is expected to be made public in November.
