Driven mad by Dublin Bus
A READER CALLED Vince is mightily ticked off by Dublin Bus.
A couple of weeks ago he boarded such a bus and asked for a city centre fare and was told by the driver “in a non-polite way, that the shopper’s fare is not available after 7pm. The driver also waved his hand at my face. Nice guy, indeed. But I got the tickets eventually,” he writes.
He points out that he never asked for a shopper’s fare: “I want a ticket based on the fact that I am travelling within the city centre. There is no shopper’s fare for years now.”
Through us he is pleading with Dublin Bus to make sure its drivers “have just the basic knowledge about applicable fares and courtesy for customers? If you advertise the city centre fare why not make sure all drivers know about it?”
He says it is the fifth time in six months he has not been treated “nicely by drivers and I know many people who had the same experience”.
