Photo of the Week - Week 23:
It's summer and it's the time for more overall wraps. With dwindling numbers of ALX400 buses, the bulk of this years adverts will be EV buses. The first two wraps were assigned to Ringsend. EV1 acquired a Repak overall advert, basically the same as EV62 which operated in Ringsend for approx 6 months last year, with a new rear advert. As per the original incarnation, the advert looks very well and stands out from the city streets.
The other Ringsend EV wrapped is EV3, which has obtained a tri-sided advert for WestJet's new service from Dublin to Calgary. The service operates three times a week. EV3 is proving very elusive since it obtained its wrap, I was delighted to find it. Donnybrook has also obtained some wrapped EVs, with EV100 in Carroll's New York Deli meats advert and EV98 in a Pride Advert for Dublin Bus, something which has become a most welcome tradition. EV100 will be the focus of next week's image of the week.
Ringsend's EV3 is seen operating Route 65B on Dame Street on the 11th June 2019. The crane in the background is working on the redvelopment of the Central Bank building, one of many projects on-going in the city at the moment (click on photo for larger version).
