On the 4th April 2013 it was time to take a full trip on the new route 1. This route runs from Shanard Road to Sandymount, operating on a twenty minute frequency. However, in the morning peak it is a split route. On the southside, it runs from Sandymount to Parnell Square, effectively the old 2, while on the northside it is either a 16 or 16C. Pictures of the 16 at the Shanard Road terminus can be found on the 16 page. On the day I travelled on GT 72 and GT 75 between Santry and Sandymount, representing the latest class of bus in the fleet, and the class that re-introduced the use of the middle door to exit the bus. The Ringsend GT fleet is primarily assigned to the 1.
