Local Lucan residents are highlighting how they feel failed by Bus Connect and hopefully have services restored, local resident Kevin Moriarty recently created an online petition to rally the community, he said ” The new C Spine bus connects is failing the residents of Dodsboro, Hillcrest, and Shackleton (as well as other parts of Lucan Village). We are way worse off now than before!”
Kevin continued “Residents no longer have a bus service to the city centre. A bus service that many have relied on has been removed. In particular, the older population in the area have been left high and dry and isolated by the withdrawal of the 25 and 239 bus services, and the long walk required now to Leixlip road to get to the city centre is completely unreasonable, and for some, impossible. Furthermore, the 239 bus to Blanchardstown hospital has been rerouted and it now takes three buses for the Arthur Griffith Park area to get to Blanchardstown hospital.”
An outdoor meeting with a large attendance was held in mid December in Dodsboro in Lucan. To sign the petition and get involved see www.change.org/p/transport-for-ireland-petition-for-the-restoration-of-the-25-and-239-bus-routes.
