GALLERY: Check out how quiet Busaras is during the strike

For context, it’s usually busier than this.

THE COUNTRY’S BIGGEST bus station was eerily quiet today.

Bus Éireann’s HQ at Busaras was virtually empty today, with only a handful of services running around the country today as a result of a strike by members of the National Bus and Rail Union.

The workers, who are opposing pay cuts as part of Bus Éireann’s efforts to stem its financial losses, account for 1,100 of the company’s 2,500 workers – but many other staff are refusing to pass picket lines.

The disruptions could continue for some time – and some school buses could be disrupted in the morning.

Here’s how Busaras looked – as workers picketed outside and only a handful of travellers stepped inside.
