Bus ser­vice ‘is not good enough’

Bray People - - COUNCIL REPORT -

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.
