    Hi folks,
    Does anybody take the 15b regularly at rush hour? Heading from Ballyboden road towards the city centre in the morning (approx. 8am) and the reverse in the evening (approx. 5pm)? What is the travel time like in both directions? And what are the chances of getting a seat?
    Thanks!

    about 1hr 20 from start to finish. Gets fairly busy both ways. inbound you'd want to be at a stop before Rathfarnham shopping centre to get on.

    Do you take it regularly? Where would you get off in the city centre? I'm just trying to work out if that 1hr and 20 is from Ballyboden to Aungier St or going through the madness of the city centre and that is actually to Pearse St!

    I get it either at 7 or 7:15 from the stop before the shopping centre and it usually takes 45 or 50 minutes to Pearse street. Got it yesterday at 4.50 from Pearse street and was in Butterfield avenue (Charleville) at 5.45. As the morning goes on it'll probably take longer ok.
    No problem getting a seat at 7 or 7.15 but I'd say as the morning goes on it gets harder. I have seen the 7.15 fill up at Rathfarnham village.

    I used to regularly get a bus (any from 14, 15/a/b/d, 65/b) from Rathgar Road to the city. At times, it was impossible to get on any bus between 7:45 and 8:15. Half the passengers get off the bus at Richmond Street South, so I'd have to walk to there to get on a bus.

    Once it took 6 minutes to just get through the traffic lights at Rathmines Town Hall.

    The main junctions in Rathmines and from the canal to Harrington Street was the worst of it traffic-wise, but generally moved quite well after Harrington Street.
