The NTA's brief is to ensure the sustainability of Public Transport in the GDA and BE's 109 is one of the flagship corridor routes delivering on the NTA's remit.
Pay close attention to the various colourful stickers,logo's and assorted other NTA/NDP/Transport 2000 stuff plastered all over the fleet....this means that the NTA are accepting the fact that THEY now have a direct input into the provision of service here.
I would recommend hitting them with FACTS,such as the actual journey-times and the numbers of passengers being traded on the contentious stretch.
The Organ Grinder may be well hidden,but once you locate his/her whereabouts get the gloves off !
Smart by name, smart by nature. Great points well done. All this moaning (and I mean no offence by that to other posters) is going to get us no where. What ever BE commitments are to meeting the requirements of all passengers it is having a huge effect on 95% of passengers that travel between Navan - Dublin only. From a Navan perspective when one considers they are paying for a 10 journey ticket expecting a so called expresso service in the Am and really not getting it because of the Blanchardstown Slip Road stop it really is time to take action. So where do start? Has anyone here participated in something similar, who do we lobby? NTA, anyone in particular? Local Councillors? Who? If people want to get involved PM me.
What do we want? Simple, at least one Xpresso service in the AM, direct and I mean Direct
and not letting the single passenger that gets of at the Blanch Slip Road or the single passenger that gets of at the Navan Road Travel Lodge (in facts gets dropped off right outside the gate).
We want an express to Dublin with first stop at either the Mather / Phibs - O'Connell Street and then the green.
In the Evening at least one Express at 4:30, 5:30, 6:30 via the Port Tunnell.
How hard is that to provide?
