Mary strongly supports any proposals which will make Dublin City’s bus service more efficient, reliable and affordable for residents and visitors alike. Without good public transport Dublin City will grind to a halt.
Mary is working with and supporting individual residents, groups, community organisations and businesses in Glasnevin, Drumcondra, Phibsborough, Navan Road, Stoneybatter, Blackhorse Avenue and Cabra to engage with the NTA on the Bus Corridor proposals.
Mary’s submission on the proposed Swords and Blanchardstown to City Centre calls for the NTA to revise their plans so that Dublin has a more reliable, efficient and affordable public bus service. That the bus network connects communities and does not divide them. That the objectives of the plan prioritise pedestrians, cyclists and bus users ahead of private vehicles. Inner city urban villages and communities like the Navan Road, Stoneybatter and Phibsborough are protected and enhanced. A free or greatly reduced bus fare is introduced to encourage out of town commuters to switch to use the public bus service. Park & Ride facilities are provided close to the bus corridors so residential areas close to the bus corridors are not overtaken with commuter parking. Dublin City Council actively engages in the process so that the bus service is integrated with the existing urban communities.
