Please see below the excellent news I have received from the NTA following my representations to secure school bus service in Knocksedan. Commencing 30 August 2017, the current school services which serve Holy Family / Colaiste Choilm / Loreto College will now include a stop in Knocksedan at Dublin Bus Stop 7654
I refer to your recent representations regarding public transport services in Knocksedan.
The National Transport Authority (NTA) has no plans to extend Route 196 to Forest Road, Rivervalley and Rathingle as these areas are already well served by Dublin Bus and Swords Express. These locations can readily be accessed from Knocksedan via connections at Swords town centre.
However, you will be pleased to know that the NTA has approved a variation to school services, which are provided by Dublin Bus under a Public Service Contract with the NTA. Dublin Bus sub-contracts these services to Fingal Coaches.
Commencing 30 August 2017, the current school services which serve Holy Family / Colaiste Choilm / Loreto College will now include a stop in Knocksedan at Dublin Bus Stop 7654. The estimated time for morning pickup in Knocksedan is 8:10am. Pick up from Loreto College on Monday & Tuesday will be at 4:00pm and arrive at Knocksedan at approximately 4:45pm. Pick up from Loreto College on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at will be at 3:25pm and arrive at Knocksedan at approximately 4:20pm.
