Dublin Bus to introduce new timetable for 38 and 39 in New Year
Labour Party Councillor Patrick Nulty has welcomed the commitment from Dublin Bus that new timetables will be published in January.
The announcement came following a meeting of Dublin Bus with local councillors in the Dublin 15 area.
“Commuters in Corduff and Mulhuddart are encountering chaos in what had been a good service. I am glad to see Dublin Bus acknowledging the problem and I hope they deliver on this in the New Year”.
“The issue of the 39 frequency through the Clonsilla Road and Blanchardstown Village was also something I was keen to put on the table for discussion. We need a proper balance between the 39 and 39a service that ensures fairness for all commuters – especially at peak times. A waiting time of at least thirty minutes in the mornings for a 39 is just way too long”.
The role of the National Transport Authority (NTA) in determining bus routes and stops was also discussed. In particular due to the fact that the NTA was still prohibiting Dublin Bus from having the 37 stop at the blanchardstown shopping centre and now preventing the 238 from stopping in Corduff.
Cllr. Nulty said “We here a lot about competition being good for consumers but the revelation that the 238 can no longer pass into Corduff estate due to what I believe is a draconian interpretation of the competition laws for private bus companies is astonishing.
“I would call on the NTA to revisit this. People in Corduff use the 238 to get to the shopping centre and this type of ridiculous bureaucracy is a major hindrance on quality of life”.
