A number of routes have been terminated until further notice
Dublin Bus services to west Tallaght are due to be suspended from 6pm on Thursday after drivers reported 35 incidents of violence, attacks, vandalism, threats with knives, and a woman driver “terrorised by a huge mob” last month.
Trade unions representing bus drivers have told Dublin Bus that it is not tenable for them to “risk life and limb, driving buses into estates in west Tallaght, to be attacked and assaulted."
In a letter to Dublin Bus human resources section on Wednesday, the National Bus and Rail Union (NBRU) and Siptu said that from 6pm certain routes will be suspended.
The routes 27, 65b and 77a will terminate at the Square Tallaght until further notice.
