Thin end of the wedge Rocker, travel pass is too hot a political potato for Dublin Bus and Bus Eireann and Government to mess with,but private companies are not obliged to accept the pass, so to my mind it's a nice "out" for the above mentioned wimps.

Aircoach accepts them, for when you go on your holliers to spend your pension abroad.

Wow Rocker we both must have met the same old geezer on the buses many years ago, did you get the No. 8 bus too? :roll: :roll: :roll:

Ha :lol: :lol: :lol: Helium,
When I read back that posting I did I have to laugh :lol: :lol: :lol: I can smell it now.
My only big bus adventure was to take the bus from the main street in Blackrock to the stop opposite Dominican Convent in Dún Laoghaire and back again in the evening, the 7A or 8. Did that from about 1964 to 1969 when my next big adventure was taking the bus into the Pillar that was something else. I took the train for the next 40 odd years.

You must be only a youngster Rocker, I got married in 1969 and emigrated across the Liffey to Raheny. No dart then just the normal train to Sandycove(now called Glasthule/Sandycove). So that old geezer was going a long time!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Ah the beloved 7a :shock: Upstairs on a wet Monday morning, heating on full blast, fogged up windows, cigarette smoke, smell of drink from Sunday night binge, smell of unmentionable mixture of Curry, Fish n Chips and Batterburger gases quietly being released into an already airless atmosphere, the coughing and sneezing and spluttering, and the smell of wet coats and feet, sure didn't we love it :roll: ah yes, Monday morning was special, :roll:
