U-turn on bus stop changes

Bray People - - NEWS -

A U-TURN on re­cent changes to the Bus Éire­ann Route 2 ser­vice that trav­els through Co. Wicklow has been wel­comed by a County Coun­cil­lor.

Fol­low­ing the an­nounce­ment at the lat­ter end of last year that cer­tain bus stops would be dropped from the route out­rage was ex­pressed by lo­cal com­muters who were con­fused about where buses were col­lect­ing and drop­ping off.

Bus Éire­ann has submitted a pro­posal to the Na­tional Trans­port Author­ity seek­ing to re­in­state stops at Lidl, Main Street and Fer­ry­bank in Ark­low whole some ser­vices will now stop at ru­ral bus stops at Jack White's, Ballincor and The Bee­hive.

Plans how­ever do not in­clude changes to the num­ber of ser­vices that stop at St. Vin­cent's Hospi­tal on Nut­ley Lane but a new route in and out of Dublin City Cen­tre will be fol­lowed via Lee­son Street and Don­ny­brook while new stops will be es­tab­lished at the O2 and Con­ven­tion Cen­tre.

Speak­ing to The Wicklow Peo­ple Cllr. Pat Fitzger­ald wel­comed the pro­posed changes.

' They are to be wel­comed, es­pe­cially the re­in­state­ment of the stops at Lidl and Fer­ry­bank. The ru­ral bus stops are also very im­por­tant to peo­ple liv­ing in those ar­eas. While it is not the full so­lu­tion the changes are a step in the right di­rec­tion.'
