    Am I right in saying that there's no point trying to get a 25a/b on the quays after 4pm? Can anyone offer advice on the best place to pick it up short of walking to Merrion Square? Ideally I would get it at Ushers or Merchant's Quay but was left waiting the guts of an hour two days in a row due to multiple phantom or full buses. At Aston Quay everyone is huddled around the bus stop suggesting there's no guarantee of getting it there either. Do I need to consider getting a bus into the city centre to get one out? Is there any alternative for getting to Lucan south at that time?

    You could pick up a 151 from Dame Street, which terminates at Foxborough in Lucan South.

    No you can get on. But you need the experience learned from years trying to get a drink in a crowded bar.
    The secret is to turn sideways to squeeze between two people then leverage back to her in front of them. Keep twisting until you get past the card reader.

    If you don't have a leap card then you deserve to walk home.

    When I’m not on the bike I get the 25X which leaves UCD at 16:30 and 17:30 so usually gets to the quays in about 25 mins. It goes through the village and terminates on Dodsboro road.

    It’s never full in the evenings, mornings are a different story.

    Ya you need to be smart at Aston quay that’s where it normally fills up. If you were to go to college street you would have no problems.

    The stop on college Street is gone now since last week for the 25/a/b. It's moved down to the Pearse Street stop before the turn on to Tara Street

    Capacity on the 25a and b increased recently. Between 16:30 and 17:30 there's 9 25as and 25bs.

    The great news is thanks to the route from Merrion being so terrible they often end up bunched together so once you have 3 25as coming down the quays together you're bound to get on one!
