Anti-social behaviour causes chaos on Dublin buses and trains

Anti-social behaviour has wreaked havoc on public transport services in Dublin over the past 24 hours.

Dublin Bus was forced to curtail two of its routes early last night as a result of bad behaviour.

The number 40 and 76 services wouldn't go through Neilstown between 8.30pm and 9.30pm while the number 40 bus avoided the Ballyfermot Road from just after 9pm for the remainder of the night.

Meanwhile, Irish Rail had to terminate its 6.35am Heuston-Newbridge service at Hazelhatch this morning due to passenger trouble.

Jane Cregan from Irish Rail says incidents like the one this morning do not happen very often.

"There are instances of antisocial behaviour on our services, that is correct, but I would say they are very much isolated incidents," she said.

The vast majority of services that we operate and the people we carry would not experience antisocial behaviour.

"That's not to take away from the distress it can cause if an incident of antisocial behaviour happens on a service that you are travelling on.
