DOHERTY calls for reversal of proposed changes to Bus Eireann Route 105

Fine Gael TD for Meath East, Regina Doherty, has called on Bus Eireann to reverse proposed changes to Route 105 which will see the new terminus at Connolly Hospital and will no longer bring commuters from Duleek, Kentstown, Ashbourne, and Ratoath to the city centre.

Doherty said “it is absolutely ludicrous for Bus Eireann to make proposed changes to this route which will see hundreds of Meath unable to travel directly to Dublin city centre every day. I am also beyond disappointed that Bus Eireann appears to have failed to adequately communicate these proposed changes to their customers.

“Cllr Sean Smith has already made a number of representations to Bus Eireann who have indicated that they intend to implement the proposed changes to route 105 as soon as the end of January.”

Doherty continued “time really is of the essence here. I have requested a meeting with Bus Eireann as a matter of utmost urgency where I will call for the reversal of the proposed changes to route 105.

“Commuters who travel seven days a week on this Bus Eireann service consist of students, professionals and old age pensioners; should these changes be implemented, hundreds of passengers will essentially be left stranded at Connolly Hospital every day.”

Concluding, the Meath East Deputy said “I am at a loss as to why Bus Eireann have proposed these changes, and it appears to me that they are the sole benefactor of any such changes. This is simply not good enough and I will continue to work with local representatives and commuters to ensure that these proposed changes are reversed.”
