Dublin Bus Could Launch 24 Hour Routes Making Life A Lot Easier For Students

Dublin Bus Could Launch 24 Hour Routes Making Life A Lot Easier For Students

Proposed plans may see Dublin Bus 24 hour routes rolled out in the city before the end of the year.

The new scheme is set to launch three main routes in the Greater Dublin area before the end of 2018.

Councillor Ciarán Cuffe, Chairperson of Dublin City Council’s Transport Committee believes the demand is there. Speaking to Newstalk, Mr. Cuffe said:

The demand is not just from party revellers going home in the small hours - there's quite a demand from night workers who simply want to be able to get to and from home through the night, and that is what a modern city needs.

We're seeing a growing trend towards night time working and I think people are sick and tired of paying a lot for taxi fare and they want to have the alternative of public transport.

If the new plans go ahead, this will no doubt have a massive impact on students who are studying in Dublin.

Going to college is expensive and with many students working part-time, those who work night shifts in pubs and clubs often have to fork out for taxi fare.

What do you think of the proposed changes? Will this have an affect on your lifestyle?
