Boden Park Faces a Reduced Bus Service

As part of their Network Direct program Dublin Bus are proposing to implement changes to routes and timetables that will potentially limit the service they offer to residents of Boden Park. They would like to invite their customers in this area to meet them to discuss these proposed changes on Wednesday June 22nd in St. Joseph’s Parish Hall, Terenure from 3pm to 8pm. Details of the changes can be found on the Dublin Bus website.

If these changes will adversely affect your commute, please let Dublin Bus and all your local elected representatives know.If you feel that this is a cut back masquerading as an improvement, please let them know. If you stay silent these changes will stick.

* Update 28 June 2011

We had a very constructive meeting with Stephen O’Shea (Constituency Officer to Shane Ross T.D) in Terenure on June 22nd. Stephen was very sympathetic to our cause and he offered that they would take our case directly to Dublin Bus
