Dublin Bus- Increased Capacity

Mary has called for Dublin Bus to increase capacity on their bus routes to meet the needs of essential workers who are still travelling to work. 

Level 5 restrictions came into effect last week, limiting capacity on public transport to 25% of its normal load.  

The level five restrictions introduced are different than earlier this year, schools have remained open which means that the routes continue to be busy. We are now into the winter months, so we need to see capacity increased on our buses so that people are not left waiting in the cold for long periods of time. 

Mary has called on the Minister for Transport to ensure that maximum capacity on Dublin bus services. Capacity is having a greater impact now than in the early stages of the pandemic due to schools, construction and more retail being open.
