The idea of this section is to share and develop our knowledge of the bus services operated by Dublin Bus and its predecessors, back to the start of the tram era. Over time, we will build a complete record of services in Dublin.
Other areas will be covered too, if there are people with the knowledge of the history of the "provincial" routes.
We will approach this on a route by route basis, each route will have its own thread.
We start by putting up the basic information on a route and what is generally known, including how the route currently operates.
The historians amongst us contribute information from their records and timetables, and anyone who can remember or has info to share does so, and over time each route record gains more detail, and becomes more complete.
Where older timetables exist, we can compare the current and older versions of routes as regards number of departures, operating times, special services etc.
We will start with a few routes, and grow gradually - it will take a long time, but the information will be preserved and available to all.
