No to limos on the bus lane

ublin City Council has overwhelmingly voted against allowing limousines to use the routes reserved for buses and taxis.

The Commission for Taxi Regulation had asked that hackneys and limos get the green light for the lanes, pointing out that diplomats and businessmen use limos during their stays.

However, Dublin City Council is to advise the Transport Minister not to give it the go-ahead.

The use of bus lanes was last reviewed by the council in 2001 - but, it was decided then that access to the lanes should remain unchanged due to concern regarding bus journey times.
