BUS STOP NO 18 – A REALLY ANNOYING LAYOUT
There is no real time passenger information display making, the problem described, even worse.
When I lived in Carlingford Road this was my local bus stop and I hated it. Unless you have used it you may not appreciate what the problem is. The bus shelter is positioned in such a way that one cannot see an approaching bus until it has actually passed the stop.
On a wet day the stop is very badly exposed and even then it can be difficult to see an approaching bus to the extent that the bus drivers frequently just drive by without stopping.
Dublin Bus was established on 2 February 1987, when Córas Iompair Éireann was split into 3 subsidiaries, Dublin Bus, Bus Eireann and Irish Rail. In September 2011, Dublin Bus received a significant technological upgrade with its introduction of real time passenger information.
