Bus Éireann says they are investigating 109X delays

Bus Éireann says it’s looking into why some buses on the 109X route to Cavan have been late leaving Dublin.

Northern Sound has been contacted by frustrated commuters, who’ve complained about delays and longer journeys on the route.


Last September Bus Éireann introduced changes to bus services operating via the M3 corridor between Cavan and Dublin.

However, the move hasn’t been without controversy with commuters frustrated with changes to timetables and routes.

One of those to contact Northern Sound said they were considering cancelling their tax saver ticket and driving to Dublin because they now have to get their bus earlier, only to reach their destination later.

They also had concerns about buses leaving Dublin after their scheduled departure time.

Bus Éireann has responded, saying the new timetable “greatly increased frequency between Meath and Dublin”, with “new, more efficient driving rosters” for staff.

It also says an enhanced timetable was introduced on the 109X service but increasing congestion has a “detrimental impact” on journey times.

It concludes by stating it’s investigating late departures on the 109X service from Busáras, using its Automatic Vehicle Location system that monitors bus movements.
