Dublin bus route creation

So doing a bit of crayon work here if you could create any Dublin bus/go ahead route where would it go and what route would it take to get there?

Personally I think a Lucan villiage to the square would be a good shout running via the Belgard road-fonthill road-castle road- ballyowen road-n4-Adamstown road and terminate at laraghcon estate.

Also I think a series of mini bus routes connecting swords with some of north Dublin’s rural communities such as naul,ballyboughal,oldtown and garristown.

Blanchardstown centre to swords

serving navan road, broombridge luas, cabra, finglas, glasnevin, ballymun, santry avenue, swords road, Dublin airport and swords

Not only does it provide a service to the places mentioned it also provides a connection to the airport and swords for the cabra and phibsborough areas and to the areas served by the maynooth line and broombridge luas.

You want a vehicle limited to 65kmh to do that?

Are they all? What about single decker coach style busses? Even still, at times that speed isn't possible on the M50. It's a route that would serve lots of orbital journeys

How would you get on to this bus ? Those is enter and exit the M50 at every junction ? Say at Blanch where would you board?

You don't need to go end to end but it would be good to have a service that will bring you between outer points of dublin to another outer point without have to go through the city centre. e.g. Tallaght to Sandyford or Blanch to the Airport/Swords.

something like this?

https://goo.gl/maps/NrrShAxeTou

Google reckons 80 mins in a car that can do 120km/h, at least double that for a speed-limited bus with stops (assuming no traffic - is there much traffic on the M50 )

(I'm not convinced there's the demand for a route connecting up shopping centres around the M50, if there is why not go into Dundrum and Ikea while you're at it?)

None of that route is 120km/hr. Your points about the speed capability of the bus and the congestion on that route largely contradict either other...

I was anticipating the bus to only stop at those places, not at each M50 exit. Is there nowhere at blach that could be configured for a bus to stop?

Each of the stops typically themselves have decent transport connections, I excluded Dundrum as the traffic around there is a nightmare and the bus would be held up for a long time and it could be accessed from Sandyford via the Luas. IKEA isn't much of a destination compared to the other stops

Yeah the start and end is right, just not the route it gives you in google maps my route was selected to hit as much housing and linked with as many other busses as possible.
