Fancy some soft-core hybrid fun?

This morning.

The first of an initial order for 100 double-deck electric hybrid buses placed by the NTA,  destined for use in Dublin by Dublin Bus and in Galway by Bus Éireann, arrived.

The new buses will enter service early in the New Year.

The exterior of the buses features the new green, yellow and white Transport for Ireland, (TFI) livery, which will be ‘phased in across the entire public service obligation (PSO) fleet over the coming year’.

But what about the spec?

The buses, designated Enviro400ER by their manufacturer Alexander Dennis Limited, utilise BAE Systems’ Series-ER hybrid system that incorporates a 32kWh next-generation lithium-ion battery energy storage system that can be charged externally via a plug-in connection.As a result, they are capable of running in zero tailpipe emission mode for a distance of at least two and a half kilometers and will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 30%.

The scene of a collision involving a bus and a car last night at around 10.40pm. RTÉ reports that two male bus passengers are in a serious condition.

How do you maintain two metres social distancing when boarding, alighting and on board on a bus? as Dublin Bus says it wants you to do. I don’t believe its possible and Dublin Bus statement is corporate nonsense.

Anyone?

Spotted this on Camden Street [Dublin 2] last night; it replaced the normal neon orange one so these might be replacing existing ones in Dublin?

Less light pollution on the street, OK, but impossible to read if you are more than 3 foot from it especially in the twilight.

Don’t know what it does after dark.

Not sure I like it, but hey, I don’t like change anyway so I’m a bad judge.

Anyone?

Last night.

Free the lanes!
