425 more buses is only fare.
DUBLIN needs an extra 425 buses to meet the city's growing population over the next five years, it was claimed yesterday.
Extensive reshaping of the Dublin Bus network is also needed to attract new customers, a new report revealed.
The Network Review, commissioned by Dublin Bus, found congestion was to blame for reducing effectiveness across the city - with journeys of just 2.4km taking more than 17 minutes.
Calls are now being made for a number of key improvements including the extra 425 buses by 2011 and reshaping of the bus network.
Self-contained networks in larger towns are also being put forward.
Dublin Bus managing director Joe Meagher said: "The report identifies improvements that we as a company have to make and which we will.
"It details the important role that the bus currently plays in the city and provides a blueprint."
