This morning was finally back to usual heavy morning traffic, with all level schools back in full swing. 15mins later into town than most of Summer.

ABP decision on college green plaza is due one month from now. Presumably the day that it's implemented will have to coincide with the day of a car ban on Bachelor's walk and George's St.

With any luck it'll be before Christmas, 4-5 years late.

Traffic this morning was a free-for-all. traffic lights and bus lanes largely ignored, people (cars bikes and pedestrians) just taking a shared space approach to junctions. I'm reminded of a wet day in Morocco. The current plans for BusConnects, car bans etc. cannot come soon enough, there needs to be 1st world standards of law and order on the streets.

I heard some rumors recently that some routes will have changes after GAI begin DB's route in October.

The 54a is to have more duties with extra 5 marked-in duties with 4 of them covered on Mondays to Fridays with an extra duty for the weekends.

The 120 is meant to be transferred from Phibsboro to Summerhill Garage in the autumn. I heard no word about timetable changes yet though.

Summerhill will definitely lose the 14 with it going back to Donnybrook Garage. The 14/61 duties are meant to be all operated in Donnybrook.

There is to be a new DB route operated by Donnybrook Garage in January 2019. I have no more info on what that route will be like for now.

Re: the 15 route. The Ringsend duties of the 15 is meant to swap to Donnybrook. Harristown duties for the 15 will remain unchanged.

I heard no word yet on the 15a/b/d current status in Ringsend.

That's just a case of Monkey See Monkey Do. It has nothing to do with the modes and everything to do for those who've no capicity to think about what they're doing.

Don't think there were accidents yesterday and today but I was 15 and 25 mins late from the norm yesterday morning and this morning respectively.

Buses were beyond capacity before reaching Crumlin (from Clondalkin). Today 2 people were sitting on the stairs and one woman standing upstairs. Horrifically bad.

Well I would have thought as the thread heading is Dublin that most at least would gather it's Dublin but not just the city centre....
