Go-Ahead Ireland have now published the timetables for Routes 45A, 59, 63 and 75 which will transfer to them from Sunday 7th October 2018.
Services that have route variations will now have their own unique suffix for ease of identification where required, to help identify them in the timetable.
The changes can be summarised as follows:
Daytime frequency enhanced to every 20 minutes, and every 30 minutes each evening and Sunday daytimes.
Existing journeys diverting via Shanganagh Cliffs Estate are numbered 45B to distinguish them from the standard route, but apart from this the route is the same as the 45A.
Departure times between Dun Laoghaire and Dalkey and vice versa have been coordinated with service 111 where possible to offer more evenly spaced departures along these roads.
The route stays the same and there are no route variations.
Weekday daytime frequency remains every 30 minutes with first and last bus times broadly similar but enhanced to every 30 minutes each evening and Sunday daytimes.
Please note, the start and end point on all routes – including 63 & 63A – are the same. The A route journeys via Foxrock as outlined on the timetable.
Existing journeys via Sandyford Business Park will remain and be augmented at peak periods. These enhance the number of peak journeys between Dundrum and Tallaght.
The route is changed in Dundrum to now serve Main Street, Taney Road and Sydenham Road to allow for better travel opportunities with connections on to the Luas green line.
The timetable has been coordinated with the route 175 between Dundrum and Tallaght to offer more evenly spread departures throughout the day.
First and last journey times are similar and additional Sunday morning and evening journeys will be introduced.
Please note, journeys via Sandyford Business Park are numbered 75A as outlined on the timetable.
All existing Dublin Bus tickets, free travel passes and Leap Cards will be accepted on all Go-Ahead services, and the fare structure will remain the same as it currently is with Dublin Bus.
