Major Travel Disruption for Commuters

There is “serious disruption” for those commuting to and from Dublin this morning as both Dublin Bus and Iarnród Éireann announced that secondary strikes by Bus Éireann workers will affect services.

Irish rail confirmed that there are cancellations across many of its services including DART, Commuter and Intercity journeys due to “picketing associated with the Bus Éireann dispute”.

It is understood that the picketing is taking place at a number of locations including Dublin Bus depots across the city.

Bus Éireann workers have been striking for a week, with services cancelled throughout the country. This mornings escalation comes after SIPTU called on Transport Minister Shane Ross to “stop dodging his responsibilities”.

Commuters were not happy with the major service cancellations and angry to see the dispute spill over into other modes of public transport.

Amidst the criticism there was also support for the striking workers.

Good news for commuters is that the Luas Red Line and Luas Green Line are operating normally with no reported delays.
