Dublin is getting a new bus route to the airport

Like the 747 route, the bus will cost €6 for a one-way ticket.

DUBLINERS WILL HAVE one more option to get to the airport on time as of this Sunday.

Dublin Bus will launch a new route, the 757, to get commuters to their flights on time. It will serve the south side of the city, starting at Camden Street and going through St Stephen’s Green, Merrion Square, the Docklands and the IFSC.

Like the 747 route, the bus will cost €6 for a one-way ticket and €10 return, with buses running from 5am to after midnight.

It is expected the route will carry 400,000 customer journeys each year and it, along with the extension to services on the original 747 route in February created 40 new jobs.

The route will serve up to 35 additional hotels and guest houses in Dublin city, bringing to 90 the number served.

Dublin Bus CEO Ray Coyne said the route was part of an ongoing push to increase passenger numbers.

“Recent years have seen a strong performance by our Commerical Services Division with Airlink passenger numbers up by 11% to 1.5 million in 2015.

“We strive to provide the best services for our customers and have set internal Airlink business projections of 100% revenue growth by 2020.”
