As of May 29th, (almost)all weekday services from Cavan to Dublin on the 109 will be non stop on the M3 Motorway between Kells and Blanchardstown and then to/ from town via the motorway to the airport and (port tunnel?) onward to town.
The exception being the first couple of busses in the morning to Dublin, which skip the airport and are extended to Stephens Green.
And in the evening, the peak time busses will start in the south inner city too.
This should mean EVERY bus is able to make the journey to/ from Dublin in a sub 2 hour time rather than about 3 hours currently with all the farting about in Dunshaughlin and back roads in Navan.
New 109 Timetable, Cavan-Kells-Blanch-Airport-Busaras
Kells-Navan-Dunshaughlin-Dublin busses remain the same as before, and take the "old" road.
On the downside, the odd passenger heading to/from Cabra/ North Circular Road etc will need to change in Kells (on weekdays) for the bus taking the "old road".
Both the Cavan "express" busses and the Navan-Kells "old road" busses will stop at Blanchardstown, so on paper that could be an interchange point too, but whether it would be allowed to get a Kells bus from Cabra Road to Blanchardstown just to catch the Cavan bus is a good question!!
On the plus side, for any Cavan people heading abroad or coming home, its an hourly service to the airport during the day on top of the late night early morning options with the nr 30 Donegal bus.
Also on the plus side, for anyone commuting to the many offices in the stephens green area, these changes should save 2 hours plus off your daily commute with the bypassed towns and 15min walk to/ from Busaras.
