Bringing the bus back to Garristown

Garristown Bus Meeting May 1st 2013

Local Green Party representative Joe O’Brien has vowed to do everything he can to bring a Bus Eireann service back to the village of Garristown. Ahead of a public meeting in Garristown Community Centre on Wednesday May 1st Mr. O’Brien issued the following statement:

Last year after I was selected as Green Party representative for the Balbriggan ward I got out on the doors to see what could be done to improve local communities. It was clear that the people of Garristown need a better public transport connection with Ashbourne and Dublin city.
I then initiated contact with Bus Eireann and Fingal County Council to see what could be done. After some over and back I am glad to report that both parties are interested in bringing back a Bus Eireann service to Garristown. The public meeting on Wednesday is an effort to build local momentum on this issue as there are still some issues to be worked through in order to make this a reality

  1. Joe,

    Can I ask regarding the work being done to get a commuter service to Garristown, have you made any further progress?

    Regards.

    Keith.

    • Hi Keith,

      Work is ongoing. Bus Eireann now looking into a Garristown to Ashbourne connection which is only half of what I am pushing for as we need the full direct connection to Dublin. I wrote to the National Transport Authority last week to see their position on a direct Dublin connection. I will be back in touch with Bus Eireann next week to see where they are at with the proposed Ashbourne connection

      Best wishes

      Joe

  2. Hi Joe,

    I am considering moving to Garristwon, and I was wondering the negotiations with Bus Eireann are going?

    Many thanks,
    Vincent
