Go-Ahead Ireland Moves To ‘Saturday Plus’ Schedule

Go-Ahead Ireland will move to what it calls a “Saturday Plus” timetable for Monday to Friday services. The reasoning behind this change is due to low demand from commuters alongside Level 5 Restrictions. The change comes into effect on Sunday, January 24th 2021 and will see a Saturday schedule for Monday-Friday with added departures during peak times. On Saturday and Sundays, the normal Saturday and Sunday schedule will kick in and will return to an enhanced Saturday schedule on weekdays until further notice. The news comes following the announcement from Dublin Bus to move to “an enhanced Saturday Schedule”

The news was confirmed in a tweet by the company:

In the area, GAI provide routes 18 from Palmerstown Village to Sandymount, 76 from Glenaulin to Tallaght, 76a from Blanchardstown Shopping Centre and 239 from Liffey Valley Shopping Centre to Blanchardstown Shopping Centre. To see the new timetable, simply click on the route you wish to travel on.

Just a friendly remember that:

  • Buses are operating at a 25% capacity rate at the point of writing this article (Level 5)
  • Face coverings are mandatory on all buses.
  • Buses are for essential journeys only.
  • Hand sanitizers are now available on all Go Ahead Ireland’s fleet and some of Dublin Bus’ fleet.

If you have any questions about any of the revised timetables, please contact GAI’s Customer Care Team on 1850 80 40 71 or you can email them on, and they will be happy to help.
