What is happening with 25B bus route?

Many of you in the Lucan area may have made a submission on changes announced by Dublin Bus through Network Direct.The consultation period ended on Friday June 18th 2010. So what’s happened since then?
Originally Dublin Bus had planned to introduce all Network Direct changes (Blanchardstown,Stillorgan/North Wicklow and Lucan/North Kildare) by the end of July. This was always an ambitious date, and has proven much more difficult than Dublin Bus had initially envisaged.

  • All changes must first be approved by the new National Transport Authority.
  • New rosters need to be put in place and accepted by the drivers.
  • Timetables, bus shelter boards need to printed and some new stops are required.
  • Formulating all information in submissions also takes a considerable amount of time.

Latest information coming from Dublin Bus is that it will most certainly be late August and possible into September before new routes will be operational.
No official response has been received from Dublin Bus, on restoring the original 25B route. But some bus driver who have contact with management have indicated that it will be reinstated.

Personally I would prefer if Dublin Bus take a little longer on planning the routes rather than rushing them through with further changes down the road.

  1. I personally think it will be a loss loosing the 151 bus route altogether, while the 25B provide a quicker alternative into the city centre I will be at a disadvantage now as I work on the old Naas road and there is no route to take me there any more if the 151 goes.

    • Barry, Dublin Bus are not intending to remove the 151. It does intend to moving the terminus to Foxborough or maybe even Woodies. The should allow commuters to make a connection either using the 25A or B.
