More car traffic lanes could soon be lost to Dublin Buses

More lanes for car traffic could soon be lost to Dublin Buses, according to the National Transport Authority.

New research into Quality Bus Corridor routes in the capital shows that it's taking longer for passengers from certain suburbs to make it into town - writes dublinlive.ie.

Lucan and Finglas travel times were even longer in 2016 than they were in 2015, 98fm reports.

Cars have also been travelling in Clondalkin, Tallaght, Bray and the Malahide Road faster than Dublin Buses.

Some €750m has been set aside by the government for transport next year, and the National Transport Authority is hoping to use some of the money to speed up bus times.

NTA CEO Anne Graham said: "It could be that a lane of car traffic may have to be given up for bus or for cycling.

"(The measures) could also include looking at the car lanes, the loss of parking, some road widening and changing signals at junctions to improve the priority."
