Dublin Bus has issued a warning ahead of Monday's rush-hour commute
It's that time of year again.
While we love Christmas and all of the festive fun that goes along with it, it seems like we forget we have to buy presents for each other until the very last week.
And that's why, as well as commuter traffic, transport services will also be carrying shoppers into the city centre from tomorrow morning.
Dublin Bus has issued a warning to ensure everyone gets to their destination on time:
Traffic volumes in the city centre will be heavier than normal on Monday 11 December 2017. Please plan and leave additional time for your journey on Monday morning. pic.twitter.com/eTZoK6sXek
