Thousands of concert goers were left stranded in Rathfarnham last night because no extra Dublin Bus services were put on.

That's according to Fine Gael councillor David McManus who says immediate action is needed ahead of more gigs at Marlay Park.

Longitude kicks off on Friday but before that Guns N Roses play tonight and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers will be on stage tomorrow.

Councillor McManus says more buses need to be put on because the lack of services affects everyone.

"Even yesterday for commuters coming out of the city centre all the buses were full to capacity in the evening.

"So this affected more people than just the concert goers, it affected commuters as well.

"I was surprised that Dublin Bus didn't prepare and plan to have additional services."

"On social media, they said they were running their ordinary weekday schedule which is totally inadequate.

"Last night, I saw people stranded on the Grange Road and for Green Day fans it was more like the Boulevard of Broken Public Transport."
