We have worked with the NTA on bus routes in the city over many years. There are two routes I want to ask about. We have had discussions with the NTA on them and we appreciate the interaction. There is an issue with the 303 bus route, of which the witnesses are probably aware. We have been onto it about the schools on Sexton Street, such as Presentation Primary School, and we have had good engagement locally about finding an accommodation around that route and that area. I saw in the rural BusConnects plan that there will be an increase in the number of bus services in Mungret from four to six per day. Has the NTA considered including Mungret as part of the suburbia and the existing city bus routes and links? Is that something it would consider? It is a high-growth area of population and it is currently on a rural route, the 314.
