The Wheels on the Bus …


The Patrick Sarsfield Car-Free Parade takes place this Saturday, September 19th, in Limerick city. The parade begins at 1.00pm and goes from City Hall, Merchant’s Quay to the Treaty Stone on Clancy Strand and will feature music and street entertainment along the way. It will also include a sword fencing demonstration and a battle re-enactment at Clancy Strand. The event is part of European Mobility Week 2009, which runs from September 16th to 22nd. The purpose of this week is to raise awareness about the benefits of walking, cycling and using public transport instead of bringing cars into the city centre. As someone who doesn’t own a car (or even know how to drive one) I’m completely in favour of any initiative that will make it easier for cyclists and pedestrians to make their way around the city centre without too much trouble. I’ve just done a post about running and I did one previously about cycling, so here are some songs about buses, bus drivers and the passengers who use this particular form of public transport
