Dublin Bus and Luas services to be suspended for longer than expected

Let’s be honest, it’s a bit of a mess.

If you travel through town, you know how frustrating it can be.

Trying to cross the Liffey and onto D’Olier Street and then College Green is sometimes the longest part of a daily commute, and at worst, can take up to 30 minutes to pass through.

And now, Dublin City Council are trying to deal with the gridlock by re-routing several buses.

Dublin Bus has already reduced the number of services by 20 percent, and now with longer Luas trams being introduced throughout the next two weeks, the bus company will have to further reduce its buses going through College Green.

According to 98fm, the National Transport Authority will meet today to discuss the future of transport travelling through the city.

The city council’s assistant CEO Dick Brady has said that further restrictions on traffic could also be introduced.
