Cyclist safety is a top priority for Dublin Bus

Posted 24 Aug 2016 to Events by Sarah Scannell

From Dublin Bus:

Recently Dublin Bus, with the help of rewnowned Irish broadcaster Cathal Mac Coille, launced its new driver training video to national cycling groups, the Road Safety Authority and other organisiations with a keen interest in cyclist safety.

Cyclist safety has always formed part of Dublin Bus driver training processes and this video aims to further increase driver awareness.

The video has a fun tone but a serious message and covers all areas of cyclist awareness and safety, teaching drivers about best safety practice. Inspired by the esteemed broadcaster and naturalist David Attenborough, the video depicts an ‘Urban Jungle’ where the bus and cyclist must coexist as one.

Dublin Bus share Dublin’s streets with other users and cyclists are some of the most vulernable road users.  At peak times there are approximately 900 buses and 8,500 cyclists on the roads together. Therefore, it is our responsibility to ensure that our drivers are equipped with the best training methods to keep both them and other road users safe.

This video will be shown to existing and new drivers as part of our driver training programme. 

View the short clip and make your way into our Urban Jungle.
