Sinn Féin TD for Dublin Mid-West Eoin Ó Broin has written to both the CEO of Dublin Bus and the National Transport authority (NTA) to express concern regarding buses at over capacity on routes from Foxborough, Lucan and Dodsboro.
Deputy Ó Broin said:
“I have received emails from bus users in the constituency raising concerns that buses on the 25a and the 25x routes are full or severely overcrowded early in the morning.
“There has been a significant increase in bus usage in both Clondalkin and Lucan in recent months at peak time services.
“Bus users are finding that the buses are now full when they reach their stop or its standing room only.
“I have written to the CEOs of Dublin Bus and the NTA asking them to reassess the current level of provision on these increasingly busier routes and where there is excess demand to increase capacity particularly on the 25a/x early morning run.
“Commuters deserve better than an overcrowded service and more resources must be found to increase the level of service at peak time on busy routes.”
