New bus srvices for Aston Village, Ballymakenny College and Southgate Shopping Centre.
Details have become available regarding the recent announcement of additional bus services for Drogheda.
The National Transport Authority (NTA) intend to introduce two new routes – Routes D4 and D5 - connecting Aston Village / Ballymakenny College to Southgate Shopping Centre – 2 buses / hour on each route combining to give 4 buses / hour across the heart of Drogheda.
It is also intended to augment and rationalise Route 173 (orbital service) and re-image as a new Route D3 to form part of the overall town network and to integrate with D1/2 and D4/5.
The NTA implemented the first route of the town service in mid-2016: Route D1 – Laytown via Bettystown to Drogheda.

Subsequently Route D2 was implemented in August 2019 – an enhancement to Route D1, effectively doubling frequency on the combined corridor while serving another approach via Golf Links Road to Drogheda. Usage of those services (prior to Covid) has been encouraging.
