Week commencing: Sunday 30th January 2011:
This week Dublin Bus announced the Network Direct plans for the Howth Road and Portmarnock areas. The main points see the 29a become the 29 and finally get the long talked about extension to Baldoyle.
As a result of this, the 32b is withdrawn from Abbey Park and all services on the 32/a/b will operate to/from Malahide (at the tennis courts) via Portmarnock to the city centre using number 32. The 31 and 31b remain as per normal with the 31b being renamed the 31a.
All Howth Road serives will depart from Lower Abbey Street with an all important integrated timetable (which ties in with all Malahide Road services using Eden Quay).
Consultation for this section ends on the 25th of February 2011 and more details can be found here.
