What happens to the buses left out in the cold?

Dublin Bus managed to allay the worries of a three-year-old who was concerned about what happens to the buses that don't make it to the garage before bedtime.

A passenger called Matthew tweeted Dublin Bus with a question from his son "Hi @dublinbusnews, my three year old wanted to know how you decide which buses get to sleep inside the depot garage and which have to sleep out in the yard."

Dublin Bus was happy to let Matthew's son know that even though there isn't enough space for all the buses to sleep inside the depot at the one time, they've worked out a fair system that gives every bus a break from the cold.

And it assured the little boy that those outside are well looked after with a sweet treat to keep them warm.

Dublin Bus tweeted: "Hi Matthew, we have rang around to a few of the depots and we can confirm that all buses are loved equally and take turns sleeping inside the warm depot. Those sleeping outside are given cocoa to keep warm."

Now you know.
