The talking bus

Dublin BusGot a different bus home last night which was the 25A route and noticied that they’ve installed an announcement system for each stop. I thought someone was talking to me at first, as I had my earphones on, but sure enough it was a woman pronouncing the next stop to be “Hueston Station”. She has a weird accent in that it’s particularly neutral. Maybe tweaking the accents for different routes would be effective, for example “the next stop is Foxrock rooiissshhh” or “it’s finglas shopping centre ya bleedin dope!”. I haven’t seen this particular facility installed on any other buses so I guess this must be a trial.
