- Dublin Bus Airlink Route to south of city
- 757 joins 747 on schedule from Sunday
The new 757 route uses the Port Tunnel and serves busy tourist, business and residential areas including St Stephens Green, Merrion Square, the Docklands (Silicon Dock) and the IFSC.
Responding to increased customer demand for Airlink services, it is expected the route will carry 400,000 customer journeys each year.
Dublin Bus says the new 757 route and extension to services on the original 747 route in February 2016 creates 40 new jobs. The route will serve up to 35 additional hotels and guest houses in Dublin city, equating to over 7,000 beds. Combined with the northside Airlink route, both routes will serve up to 90 hotels and guesthouses (over 18,000 beds).
Airlink now offers travellers two routes between Dublin city and the airport and excellent value for money (adult single tickets €6/€10 return) with buses on the new route beginning at 5am and running through to 12.15am. For information on stops and to view a timetable visit www.dublinbus.ie
Ray Coyne CEO of Dublin Bus said: “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. Airlink offers customers an affordable and quick transport link to Dublin Airport and the addition of this new route serving the south of the city will further enhance the service.”
