As a response to our article ‘BusConnect – don’t lose our 47 bus – here is what you can do!‘ , we received a very valuable comment:
As well as the 47, we’re going to lose the 118 bus, which is a crucial route for local kids going to Coláiste Íosagáin and Coláiste Eoin as it goes straight down Brewery Road to the N11 rather than getting snarled up for a long time in the industrial estates and Stillorgan Village. Parents of current students of those schools and parents of kids in local Gaelscoileanna who hope to go on to secondary level at those schools will have a keen interest in retaining it. It only runs twice a day – in the mornings – and it’s oversubscribed as it’s a far better option than the 47 for accessing the N11. It’s also a quicker option for UCD students.
