So the 3 link from UCD to Sydney Parade will go. Will it be replaced by anything? It is well used in the Evening going to the dart, less so in the opposite direction.

From memory the 2 is going to do ucd>parnel sq only. They also want(to be decided) to reroute the 47 from the Merrion rd to go via Ringsend to Fleet st.

The 44 Enniskerry (or lack of) link dates back to Friday, July 22, 2011.

I didn't spot that. I don't remember if that was picked up on this thread back in July 2011!


Hopefully you are right about db making a mistake about this on the website. I would be more inclined to believe the bill that you have seen particularly if the web information is that old.

It has been updated in the past few days with the title date left unchanged.

Quote:
Route 3/a will operate alternate journeys from Parnell Square to Larkhill and Shanard Road via Dorset Street and Drumcondra.
Cached copy of the original version which is quoted above (from only the other day 21/4/12) can be seen here.

I still say that the 2 should have been extended to Shanard Road and the 3A not even created. Run the 2 as Shanard Road-Belfield and the 3 as Larkhill-St. John's Church. Who to talk to at DB that has some influence?

I strongly suspect the 44 listing is an error - there is no way that will not operate to/from Enniskerry.


As I read it the plan is:

Route 44 Larkhill - Enniskerry (it has to be Enniskerry and not Kilternan).
Route 1 Shanard Road - Sandymount

The plans for the 2 and 3/a would appear thankfully to have been shelved.

It seems db made a mistake on their website and they've changed it

It had to be - there was never any suggestion of any cuts to services to/from Enniskerry.

It good that this is all sorted now. The changes for the Swords QBC actually improve the network a fair amount.

A few calls last night and an email this morning and all is sorted out ~ the 44 was an error spotted by internet users.
