The warning comes after a bus driver was allegedly the victim of a serious assault at the station in recent weeks.

Members of the National Bus and Rail Union (NBRU) have now said they will stop picking up and dropping passengers off at Busáras after 8pm from Monday 16 September unless Bus Éireann takes action.

“We’ve been calling for some time for a garda public transport division to try and help police public transport. And while different types of resources would be needed for buses, as opposed to trains, that campaign goes on.”

O’Leary added that the union’s members would take action from next week if more security wasn’t provided, and could do so sooner if there was another incident involving a driver before then.
