Cork city route 208 is mainly operated by newer Wright Gemini 2 bodied Volvo B9TL double decks, but occasionally sees older buses.
DD17 is a 2004 Volvo B7TL with East Lancs bodywork, originally used on services in the North East corridor between Dublin, Drogheda and Dundalk. It was transferred south more recently as the company realised that it’s previous policy of single- decking all Cork routes had been a mistake.
DD17 is seen here in the west if the city, turning from Curraheen Road onto Hawkes Road. Bright sunlight is making the destination – 208 Lotabeg – difficult to read.
