Good News for Celbridge Commuters

Dublin Bus have informed local Fianna Fail T.D. and Convenor of the Oireachtas Transport Committee, Áine Brady that they are to increase their service in Celbridge to compensate for Circle Line’s withdrawal from the route.

“This news from Dublin Bus will be a great relief to commuters who were reliant on the Circle Line service and were left high and dry as a result of the withdrawal of services.”

“As soon as I heard of Circle Line’s intention to withdraw their service I contacted Dublin Bus and the Minister for Transport, Noel Dempsey to impress upon them the importance and urgency of providing an alternative for north Kildare commuters who relied on the service.”

“I also raised the matter at a meeting of the Oireachtas Transport Committee.”

“I am delighted that Dublin Bus has recognised the need in the area and sought to increase their service and that the Department of Transport responded so speedily to their application to do so.”

“I will remain in contact with Dublin Bus on this issue and will be urging them to put the additional service in place as soon as possible. It is vital that the extra busses are running in time for the new school term,” concluded Deputy Brady.
