This morning on the 77a, rocking this free world from Citywest to the Barn.

Seats are not for feet, still.

    Dublin Bus management have a bad attitude. It trickles down to how drivers behave too. The standard has been slipping in the last five years. Customers, and doing things like stopping at bus stops and red lights is a nuisance now.

    In 9 years, since iv been in my current job, the fare has gone up by over 110%. Dublin bus is an awful service and for the pieces of poo they call buses it’s a rip off.

      Similar situation here. I’ve been using Dublin Bus for almost 10 years and it has gone from €1.20 to €3.70, each way, with no increase in frequency (about 1 bus every hour or so) or standards.

      It’s an absolutely ridiculous.

      I wasn’t sure either if it was a Women’s Day post that we were meant to laud, or a grammar error we were meant to sneer at.

    Nothing wrong with having a driver listen to a few tunes on the radio considering what they have to put up with. Now it’s the ones with the X-Boxes and the Oculus Rifts I worry about.

    I love getting on the bus and hearing the driver’s radio, cos if it’s loud enough for passengers to hear then it’s usually reggae or punk or something interesting like that.

    Buses are still gross, but the radios make it a tiny bit better for all of us.

    Leo Vodkar messed up the whole bus service in Dublin during his tenure at transport. He was following…you guessed it. European guidelines. Bus routes no cross the city center instead of going in and out of the city center. This causes delays all over the place and renders the whole system unreliable. AND the fares have STILL gone up. Joke. Good that they’re letting the drivers play radios. Stop taking stuff off people.

    Fares have increased because subsidies have decreased. We’ve a private bank debt to repay, in case you’ve forgotten.
    42% of the cost of the European bank crisis, to be specific. A total of €9,000 per person.
    Ah but shure that’s all in de past.

    I had to listen to a bus driver play an entire Elvis Live in Concert CD the other day. I could hear it upstairs on the bus.
    I’m not sure how Elvis could’ve warned him about an accident in the Port Tunnel.
