Phase 5a of the BusConnects Network Redesign involves the introduction of new W Orbital routes W4, W61 and W62. Operated by Go-Ahead Ireland, these 3 new buses provide access to routes across Dublin and Kildare.
|W4||The Square, Tallaght
Grange Castle Business Park
Liffey Valley Shopping Centre
Blanchardstown Shopping Centre
Celbridge Main St
Maynooth Community College
Greenogue Industrial Estate
The Square, Tallaght
The plan is to join routes W61 and W62 as soon as road network improvements are available in the Hazelhatch area.
W orbitals run, on average, every 15-30 minutes on weekdays and every 30-60 minutes on both Saturday and Sunday. To download or view the frequency guide for all routes, please click the link below.

The TFI 90 Minute Fare applies to most journeys in the Dublin area, along with some parts of East Kildare and North Wicklow. It allows you to transfer between Dublin City Bus (Dublin Bus and Go-Ahead Ireland Dublin city services), Luas, DART and commuter rail (zones 1 to 4 in the Short Hop Zone) for free during 90 minutes when using a TFI Leap Card. You must touch-on every time you board a service to demonstrate you hold a valid ticket for each journey. As long as you touch-on your last service within 90 minutes of the first touch-on, you will qualify for the TFI 90 Minute Fare.
|TFI Leap Fares||Adult||Young Adult / Student||Child|
|TFI 90 Minute Fare||€2.00||€1.00||€0.65|
|TFI Cash Fare||Adult||Child|

Due to Irish Water works on R405 between Dublin Road and Shinkeen Road, the following diversion will be in place for route W61 in both northbound and south bound directions. For map view, please select the below link.
Maynooth Station Stop #7779 on Straffan Road (Southbound) is still in final stages of design and therefore currently unavailable. The adjacent stops served by new Route W61 in the southbound direction towards Hazelhatch Station are listed below, and can also be viewed on the map by selecting the link.
The other routes that will make up the new BusConnects network will be rolling out on a phased basis over the next few years.
An Orbital is a name given to the type of route that provides connections between suburbs, without having to travel into the city centre. Some examples of Orbitals are routes N4 and N6.
