Imag­i­na­tive so­lu­tion to No. 45 bus route prob­lems needed says Deputy Tim­mins

Bray People - - News Focus -

THE Num­ber 45 bus route should be com­ple­mented with a pri­vate ser­vice ac­cord­ing to lo­cal TD, Billy Tim­mins.

Speak­ing last week Deputy Tim­mins said Bray Town Coun­cil needs to de­vise an imag­i­na­tive so­lu­tion to deal with the bus prob­lems the town will ex­pe­ri­ence when Dublin Bus cut the num­ber of buses ser­vices dra- mat­i­cally. ‘Like all pub­lic rep­re­sen­ta­tives I am con­cerned about the Dublin Bus pro­posal to re­duce the num­ber of buses on the No.45 route by al­most half,’ says Wick­low Fine Gael TD, Billy Tim­mins.

‘Many com­muters and school­go­ers liv­ing in parts of the west and east sides of Bray de­pend on the 45 bus to get them to school and/or to the DART sta­tion. I think of peo­ple avail­ing of the Old­court, Wolfe Tone and Es­planade ser­vices in par­tic­u­lar.’

Deputy Tim­mins said that if Dublin Bus is un­will­ing to pro­vide the vi­tal ser­vice then Bray Town Coun­cil should con­sider giv­ing the route or even part of it to a pri­vate bus op­er­a­tor.
