Increases In Bus Capacity for Lucan Commuters Welcomed
Dublin Mid-West T.D. John Curran has welcomed the news from Dublin Bus that commuters in Lucan are set for much improved services on the 25a and 25b. Route 25a will benefit from an additional 46 departures per week and the 25b will gain a total of 32 extra trips. Deputy Curran was commenting after receiving the news from Dublin Bus, he said: “After making representations to Dublin Bus and bringing this issue to the floor of the Dáil in recent months and in order to alleviate the capacity issues for Lucan commuters, I am delighted to report that I have received news that Lucan’s 25a and 25b will benefit from enhanced services, resulting in an overall enhanced timetable, particularly on week days and Saturdays. Dublin Bus have informed me that the route will also benefit from earlier departure times on Sunday, improving the journey between Lucan and the City Centre.
Many residents in Lucan have contacted my office in relation to the difficulties they experience on their daily commute from Lucan. There have been significant gaps in existing services in Lucan on the 25A and 25B services. From times as early as 6.30am the 25A and 25B are overcrowded and not stopping for commuters. This is simply not good enough for residents in Lucan who get up early in the morning to make their way to work to face this chaos on their commute. I trust that this announcement by Dublin Bus will go some way to alleviate the pressure in Lucan”, concluded Deputy Curran.
