***SEE OUR NEW BUS DESIGN BELOW***Conyngham Road Depot is situated between the
River Liffey and the Phoenix Park in Dublin. It is also very close to Heuston Train Station. The bus routes that operate
from Conyngham Road are the 13's, 68's, 69's, 76's, 40's, 79's (NEW 79A ROUTE TO PARKWEST
FROM 17th JULY 2005), *NEW ROUTE* 151's. Harristown
is the new Dublin Bus garage that opened on 31st October 2004. The company moved the 66/26 and 67
routes to Phibsboro Garage as part of the reorganisation of routes when Harristown opened. Routes 25/25A moved to Phibsboro
Garage in early 2007. The new route 151 NOW operates from the Docklands (part of the IFSC) off
the North Quays past the Point Depot and around the back. It travels through Dolphin's Barn, Crumlin, Walkinstown (Long Mile
Road), Clondalkin, Lucan (Griffeen Road) and terminates at the Train Station in Adamstown, just
after Grange Castle Business Park.
I know Conyngham Road is a popular depot, but now we are having the Dublin Bus Tours visit the depot
as well. I hope the drivers are telling our visitors just how hard we work as a team in Conyngham Road. I mean, let's face
it, it looks like we are as popular on the tours now as President McAleese living in the Phoenix Park opposite. Ah, fame at
The photographs (below) are the first photographs, (courtesy of Team Conyngham Road's SIPTU Dublin Bus Branch
Representative Graham Cleary), of the new type buses purchased by Dublin Bus and soon coming to a Dublin Bus Depot
near you in late 2007. Graham and his colleagues went to Scotland recently to oversee the delivery schedule of the new buses.
As you can see from the photographs, the new buses are an excellent choice for Dublin Bus as we continually aim to improve
our services and comfort to our valued and loyal customers.
