First BusConnects services begin today in Dublin

The first services of the redesigned bus network for Dublin ‘Bus Connects’ are to begin today for Howth and Malahide.

The new network includes the construction of 16 continuous bus corridors and segregated cycle lanes across Dublin City.


Under the new system, buses will no longer be operating under the numbering system but under a new lettering system from A-H which will see busses running every four to eight minutes.

The letter will represent the spine of the route while the number will indicate the different branches of the spine.

There will be an additional 12 orbital routes which will provide links to suburbs, rail, Luas and other bus routes.


There will also be city-bound routes, peak-only routes, express routes and local routes.

The H route will be the first route to come into service, which will run from Lower Abbey Street and through Fairview.

A split will be introduced at Raheny with H1 buses heading to Baldoyle, H2s will serve Portmarnock and Malahide while H3s will go to Sutton and Howth.

Additionally, Howth will have a city-bound route that will head from Howth harbour, up to the summit and around Howth Head before it eventually meets up with the H3 at Sutton Cross. The new routes are to replace the 29a, 31, 31a, 31b, and 32.

The next set of routes will be introduced in October, which will run from Sandymount and Ringsend to Lucan and south Kildare, through the city centre.
