As the Green Party Councillor for Kimmage-Rathmines I wish to broadly support the BusConnects proposals and the ambition to radically upgrade our public transport system. As we emerge from the Covid crisis while continuing to deal with a climate emergency, we cannot accept a return to a gridlocked city with chronic car-dependency, ever-worsening air quality, and the ongoing loss of biodiversity. The imperative to offer safe, sustainable and low-carbon transport options has never been more urgent. I believe BusConnects will be an integral part of the transport solution for Dublin, but it has the potential to be so much more – it offers an opportunity to reimagine our city and plan for a future where Dublin is a connected, climate-resilient capital where streets are for people and private car ownership is an option not a necessity. This submission was a general application relating to the various routes in my local area. Read my submission here.
