Transport for Ireland (TFI) introduces new integrated timetable of bus services on Routes 33 and 33a

1 year ago Mon 26th Nov 2018

From Sunday 2 December a new integrated timetable of services will be introduced on Dublin Bus Route 33 and Route 33a which, from that date, will be operated by Go-Ahead Ireland.

The 2 routes combined will provide a 30 minute frequency all day every day between Skerries, Rush, Lusk and Swords. Route 33 will continue south of Swords to provide direct services to destinations along Swords Road and Drumcondra Road to the city centre.

The frequency on Route 33a will be significantly increased and for the first time will connect Skerries, Rush and Lusk directly to Dublin Airport. Further interchange opportunities are available in Swords for onward travel to Donabate and Portrane (Route 33b), Seabury and Malahide (Route 102), Kinsealy and destinations along Malahide Road to the City Centre (Route 43), North Swords (Routes 41 and 41C) and Swords River Valley (Routes 41c and 102). Additional frequent services operate from Swords to Dublin City on Routes 41 and 41c via Swords Road and Drumcondra Road and by Swords Express via Holywell, the Port Tunnel and North Docklands.

TFI will also be introducing early next year a new service linking Swords with Ashbourne.

Additional morning and afternoon peak time services between Skerries, Rush and Lusk are provided on Route 33x operated by Dublin Bus and from Lusk on Route 533 operated by Fingal Express.

Services between Balbriggan and Dublin Airport and direct to Dublin City are provided by Bus Éireann on Route 101.

Iarnród Éireann will shortly be introducing an improved frequency of services in the off peak periods and at weekends from Balbriggan, Skerries and Rush & Lusk north to Drogheda and Dundalk and south to Dublin City with connections towards Dun Laoghaire, Bray and Greystones.
