Petition to create a bus route from Swords to Beaumont Hospital
The NTA have confirmed a consultation process for the Summer. We must take this opportunity to suggest we want a direct route with no exchanges.
They have suggested
Swords, Clongriffen, Beaumont, DCU
Shane Ross’s Office have confirmed they have the petition, however they have the link and they will read what people are saying, so keep signing and voicing your opinion
There is no direct bus route from Swords to Beaumont Hospital. Right now people coming from Swords have to get off in Santry and get one or two other buses. For those who attend regularly, or have an out patient appointment, who can’t afford a taxi, they must take two buses or walk from Santry Wood.
People who work in Beaumont have difficulty getting there as do visitors. We need a new route and bus leaving the 17A to service other areas
Here is a list of the Current Bus Routes
The following buses serve the Beaumont Hospital area:
14: From Dundrum to Eden Quay to Connolly Station and then to the front gates of Beaumont Hospital (10 minute walk to our front entrance).
16: From Ballinteer to Rathfarnham Road to Drumcondra Rail Station and then to Beaumont Road (20 minute walk to our front entrance).
17A: From Howth Junction Dart Station, stopping at Beaumont Hospital, Cappagh Hospital, and James Connolly Hospital, terminating at Blanchardstown Shopping Centre.
77: From Tallaght, Crumlin, and Walkinstown to Connolly Rail Station and Fairview, then on to Northside Shopping Centre (10 minute walk).
104: From Clontarf Conquer Hill to Vernon Avenue, Harmstown, Edenmore, Donaghmede SC, Clarehall SC, and Northside SC, then to Beaumont Hospital.
