“I was sitting on the dirty 17a Bus yesterday in the rain and noticed how nice the window wipers sounded. I decided to record it and looped it up on my MPC and recorded a little live session dedicated to those mundane mornings on Dublin Bus.”

Dublin Bus tweetz:
“Lost your phone on the bus? Here are the phones left on our fleet between Oct 8th & Oct 14th.”

A video I recorded on my way home from work on the 66 bus last night [Dublin city centre to Lucan village]. For 50 mins, this child was SCREAMING. The’mother’ and her friend ignored him and continued to laugh and chat. He was so upset he started getting sick, still the mother wouldn’t pick him up.
The poor bus driver was so distracted and stressed from the screams he was called the gardaí! He did ask her about 10 times, would she pick up and comfort the child…but the response was “DONT TELL ME HOW TO RAISE MY CHILD!” I still have a headache…
Update: Strike off (for the moment)
Except in tiny little circles on the pavement.
Members of SIPTU and NBRU trade unions at Ringsend bus station, Ringsend, Dublin, this afternoon on the third day of strike action by Dublin Bus drivers.
NBRU spokesperson Dermot O’Leary said: “Our members are willing to sit down and talk with management but it’s up to Government ministers to intervene.”
Mr [Leo] Varadkar [Transport minister] said: “There was a time in the past when ministers would intervene personally and directly to solve the problem with taxpayers’ money. That’s not the way Ireland works any more, and it’s never going to work like that again.”

You may recall last week’s soft-core, then orange-coloured 1984 D635 parked at the Malahide, Co Dublin, beach terminus.
Well, the bus went on to have several lives as a ‘mature’ double decker.
Before radio’s Simon Maher (above) and Steve Conway fell for the x-rated charms of the retro bone rattler.
Following on from your picture of myself and Steve Conway’s bus, This is her (centre) taken this week as she awaits restoration to her former glory :) Capital D [presented By Ann Cassin] also did an item on her (video above).
