Don't forget the Dublin Bus strikes are back on later today

Don't be caught out tonight.

Dublin Bus is set to go on strike this evening, for the second time this month.


The employees striking over disputes in pay. According to RTÉ they are seeking a wage increase of 15% over three years as well as a 6% award from 2008 which was unpaid due to the economic crisis.

While a full strike will take place Thursday and Friday, it will begin tonight with all services stopping at 9pm.

They have released the following statement:

"On Wednesday, 14 September, the final departures on all Dublin Bus services will be up to and including 21.00. This includes Airlink services.

This is to ensure the safe and secure return of buses to each depot prior to the commencement of industrial action by all employees at midnight that night. Ghostbus will operate at 20.00 on Wednesday, 14 September."

They have also said that they will issue refunds to certain customers:

"Dublin Bus will issue customers with annual and monthly tickets on Leap Cards with a refund for each day lost due to the industrial action.

Customers can collect their refund at our Head Office on 59, Upper O’Connell Street. Refunds should be claimed once the dispute is resolved."

Another strike will take place 23rd Thursday and 24th Friday.
