Bus service ‘is not good enough’
GREYSTONES Town Council have agreed to write to Dublin Bus inviting them to the April council meeting to discuss concerns over their current service to the town.
The decision was made at the March meeting of the town council, which took place last Tuesday, in response to a motion raised by Mayor Stephen Stokes.
In this motion, the Mayor noted that 84x journeys can take well over an hour and that many Greystones users of that service find themselves turned away due to overcrowding.
The motion also called for Greystones' inclusion in Swiftway, a new bus rapid transit network for the Dublin area intended to reduce commuting time.
The motion was strongly backed by Cllr James O'Sullivan, stating that ‘I have had a number of complaints about buses being full. We should ask for much better service.'
Cllr Billy Norman called it ‘a fantastic motion,' arguing that at times there was ‘flagrant disregard for people who depend on the bus service to get around.'
Other councillors concurred that Dublin Bus should be invited to the next meeting to discuss these issues.
