DUBLIN, Ireland - Dublin Bus is planning to introduce three new bus routes this weekend in a move that is set to improve services along the areas involved.
The introduction of the three new routes comes after British transport firm 'Go Ahead' won the tender and gained ownership of a portion of the outer Dublin Metropolitan Area bus routes.
According to the National Transport Authority (NTA) the three new routes add to those that have been switched from Dublin Bus to Go-Ahead Ireland.
Further, the NTA said that the three Dublin Bus routes will lead to "immediate improvements in frequency and service levels."
The three revamped bus routes - 111, 184 and 185 - will become operational by October 21 (Sunday).
The routes, which are part of the third batch to be run as part of the new takeover, will be followed by 17 other routes that will be transferred to Go-Ahead shortly and will be announced on November 18 and on January 20.
According to the announcement, customers will still be able to use their Leap Card for journey on these new routes.
Adding that fares too will remain the same.
