Throwback Thursday (152)
A short hop back to 2012 this week. RV 560 is seen at Dublin Airport with a 16. This was in its final days in service, and was the last high-floor bus in service with Dublin Bus. Once it was withdrawn the entire Dublin Bus fleet became 100% accessible.
In the background is Terminal 2 which at the time had only been officially opened two years previously. An Aer Lingus aircraft can also be seen landing in the background. In 2019 this airline is due to undergo a rebrand, so will we lose the distinctive green livery?
Finally, from the start of December 2018 this bus area is shared with Go-Ahead Ireland who operate the 33A and 102 from here. As a consequence the 16 has seen an increase in services.
