Dublin Bus drivers on the 27 route will not drive through parts of Tallaght on polling day tomorrow in protest over anti-social behaviour.
The National Bus and Rail Union (NBRU) says it received 15 reports of incidents from drivers on the route in the last number of months.
Drivers have reported being spat at and having stones thrown at them, with one driver currently out sick after being hit in the head with a rock.
Members of the union now say they'll only operate the 27 route as far as the Square shopping centre between 9am and 6pm on Saturday.
Sean Yeates from the NBRU said they are using polling day to draw attention to what they want.
Speaking on Newstalk Breakfast, he explained: "This is an ongoing issue and at this stage drivers are sick to their teeth of having to put up with this type of behaviour.
"[Drivers'] safety and that of those they serve is being compromised by a very small minority of people, to the detriment to the vast majority of commuters who just want to get from A to B."
Explaining what drivers are looking for, he said: "Over the years, we used to have a CIE car with a Garda support out in west Tallaght.
"It was there on a nightly basis - it would follow the buses around, and the incidents decreased because there was a visible presence on the ground."
The NBRU has also reiterated its call for a dedicated transport police.
