Those depending on Dublin Bus to travel to work were met with a unwelcome surprise early this morning, with many routes cancelled as Dublin Bus workers joined in solidarity with their colleagues at Bus Eireann.

Bus Eireann staff are currently on an all-out strike in protest against new new cost-saving efficiency measures and work practice changes.

While there was no official sanctioned action by Dublin Bus workers today, management were informed in the early hours of this morning that some employees would be refusing to pass picket lines at depots shared by Bus Eireann workers.

While some services continue to run, there will be disruption across many routes today and commuters on Twitter had mixed feelings about the move...

A spokesperson for Dublin Bus has apologised to customers for the inconvenience caused and advised any affected to get in touch for the latest information on impact to services.

“Dublin Bus is not a party in the dispute at Bus Éireann. However, we are currently experiencing severe disruption to our services as a result of organised secondary picketing at our depots.We advise customers to check our Twitter account, @dublinbusnews and our website,, or contact our customer comment line on (01) 8734222 for the most up to date information on our services.

“We apologise to customers for the inconvenience caused.”
