The buses on the Howth Road have always been atrocious. Very infrequent. I'm not even sure if Bus Connects will be on the Howth road but with all the rich people living there there wont be any sway or tree felling or garden shortening anyway, so I'm not sure how they could improve bus services.

It is designated as the H Spine in bus connects plan but as I mentioned a couple of posts above the planned service is abysmal, 1 bus every 30 minutes for 2 of the 3 services. And the H Spine will not cross the Liffey, will continue to leave passengers at Talbot/Abbey St facing on onward journey for many commuters.

I grew up closer to the howth road than the malahide road and over the course of a few decades I probably took a bus from the howth road 2 or 3 times, just because you can be waiting for 45 minutes or so sometimes. Maybe Dublin Bus just aren't bothered on this route because there are dart stations too.

The current poor bus service is designed by some evil genius.
29A leaves Baldoyle.
31 leaves Howth.
32 leaves Malahide.

They all converge and hit Raheny-Killester at the same time.
Happens way too much for it to be coincidence.

So if you miss this convoy you miss all the buses in that slot.

And forget about the 31 going out of town on sunny summer weekends!

Similar, I grew up using the Howth Road buses and would often be waiting ages for a bus (pre app days) but have recently moved and am closer to Malahide Road where I wouldn't even both checking the app because you know a bus will be along in 5 minutes maximum.

I think I read on 1 of the BusConnects forums that some Howth residents asked for less frequency on the 31 routes.

Howth residents who never take the bus!
Probably there's a stop outside their house or something.

I haven't heard that from anyone, so dunno where that came from but their proposal to reduce to 30 mins freq was pointed out as folly as was the notion to split the corridor, now rightly scrapped.


One of these planners also had no idea that there are anything up to 1000 homes between Sutton X and the Baily. There was a bit of comedy when the Chair of Howth Sutton Community Council corrected him and his colleague agreed.

Good point, about the Howth Road route...

We need to put extra Darts on during peak hours though.

Hopefully the objection is dismissed so this much needed development can proceed.
