It will continue onto Morehampton Road,
Donnybrook Road, and the Stillorgan Road. At Nutley Lane, it will meet the UCD to City Centre bus corridor.

The bus will go on the Stillorgan / Bray Road as far as the Loughlinstown Roundabout.
Then, it will go along the Dublin Road through Shankill and towards Bray.
This bus corridor ends at the Dargle River Crossing in Bray.

Now, the bus journey from Bray to the City Centre takes up to 55 minutes.

With the bus corridor, this journey will take up to 45 minutes.

TFI need to make changes along the route to
