The aim of the Network Direct project is to deliver a simpler network that is easier to understand provide more frequent and direct services, reducing travel time and improving reliability.

'Part of the service improvements include a service to Moyglare Road and Meadowbrook in Maynooth and Gleneaston in Leixlip.'

'The National Transport Authority, set up in December 2009, is now adopting a co-ordinated approach to Transport Policy in the Greater Dublin Area. On Monday of this week, they met with Community Groups in Kilcock to discuss the concerns of reduced level of service following the withdrawal of Dublin Bus services. Later this month, they will carry a Real Time Passenger Information Pilot in Dublin and next year, this will be rolled out to the Greater Dublin area giving upto date information on Bus Times.'

'Since getting elected, I have continued to highlight the importance of improving our Public Transport Infrastructure in North Kildare. We have seen improvements to both the Bus and Rail services. Recently, the Transport Authority has allocated a €1m investment to improve the public transport infrastructure in the Maynooth. I will continue to work with all concerned to make further improvements to the public transport infrastructure in the county.' concluded Minister Brady.
