A new bus service will soon connect commuters in Finglas to the Luas Green line at Broombridge.

The National Transport Authority and Dublin Bus have reportedly reached a preliminary agreement to put the new route on line as soon as possible.

Commuters can use the service from as early as March, following a meeting between Fine Gael Deputy Noel Rock and senior management at the company last week, where Deputy Rock outlined his concerns over transport issues between Finglas and the newly opened Luas Line on the northside.

Welcoming the new link, he said he hopes it will ‘ease traffic congestion and commuter frustration’ for communities in the area.

“This is something I’ve been pushing for since my election to Dáil Éireann and I’m very satisfied that sense has prevailed.”

This is common sense stuff. Finglas buses to town are overcrowded and the new Luas line terminates just 500 metres south of Finglas. The new route is certainly a step in the right direction and something I certainly had in mind when I started my ‘Fingluas’ campaign.”
