Acclimatizing to Dublin Bus

Sunday, 30 November, 2014

The function of Dublin Bus is to provide public transport in Ireland’s capital city. According to its website, the service carries 118 million customers a year, employing a fleet of 900 buses and 3,238 full-time staff. Interestingly, for a capital city’s main transit network, no complete system-wide street map is available online. What is online, though, is a reddit thread where people say things like, “I’m swearing a fuck load because it’s the only language appropriate to describe Dublin Bus and their shit-awful service, the fucks.”

It’s easy to spot the overseas visitors to Dublin on the city’s buses in winter. Unlike the locals, who are used to the vagaries of Dublin Bus vehicular heating standards, many visitors find their all-weather gear is essential for both inside and outside wear.
