Upcoming Go-Ahead Ireland Timetable Changes

06.6.19

Following consultation with and approval from the National Transport Authority (NTA), Go-Ahead Ireland is amending several of their timetables. The changes will come into effect on Sunday 16th June 2019 and relate to the 17 (Blackrock-Rialto), 17A (Blanchardstown-Kilbarrack), 104 (Clontarf-DCU), 114 (Blackrock-Ticknock) and 220/220A (Lady’s Well Road-DCU).

A summary is below; and new timetables will available on www.transportforireland.ie and www.goaheadireland.ie.

On changeover day, the new timetables will also be available on the TFI Real Time and TFI Journey Planner Apps.

All Affected Routes

  • Running times have been reviewed on an individual basis
  • Departure and arrival times may have moved.

 

17A – Blanchardstown to Kilbarrack 

  • Morning peak departures more evenly spaced. As an example, during peak times buses left approximately every 15 mins, the new changes see them leave at 10-minute intervals, from Kilbarrack, between 0655 and 0750
  • From Blanchardstown it remains every 15 minutes between 0635 and 0820.

 

17 Blackrock – Rialto route

  • Morning peak departures more evenly spaced. As an example, during peak times buses left approximately every 15 mins, the new changes see the 17 leave every 10 minutes from Rialto between 0640 and 0710
  • Apart from the 17D route, all journeys operate the entire length of the route (i.e. there are no short trip, for example terminating at UCD mid route) with the majority now servicing both UCD and continuing to Blackrock
  • The 17C route no longer operates, all the previous 17C journeys are converted into 17 journeys meaning UCD is served on every trip
  • Please be aware, as UCD is a driver switchover stop area, there will be occasions when buses are standing, with passengers on the bus, for a short time.

 

104 Clontarf Road – DCU 

  • All trip running times have been reviewed with added time being allocated for the route to be completed
  • Departures/Arrivals at DCU are moved slightly to better make Lecture start/end times
  • On Sunday, the last two trips continue all the way through to Clontarf Station (as opposed to terminating at Beaumont Hospital)
  • Schedules have been revised on this route so that most arrive in DCU a quarter to the hour and leave approximately 10 mins after the hour; this is to facilitate the start and end of lectures.

 

114 Blackrock – Ticknock 

  • All trip running times have been reviewed with added time being allocated for the route to be completed.

 

220/220A Lady’s Well Road – DCU 

  • All trip running times have been reviewed with added time being allocated for the route to be completed
  • Departures tend to leave Blanchardstown earlier than previously – this is due to the additional running time required
  • 08:42 from Lady’s Well Road now leaves at 08:10 in order to make arrivals for school starting time
  • Stop 94 on Ballymun Road will no longer be served by the 220/220A. This is due to the fact the bus must cross several lanes of traffic to turn right at the next junction.
