Is there anywhere in Dublin where you have the choice of all of the above options anyway?

I hate public transport and never use it. Nothing snobby about my decision or anything, I've just had my own transport for decades and can't stand having to wait around for stuff. It's also a f***ing rip off in Ireland. I remember using the bus service when I lived in Newcastle and it was only 22 pence or something to get from central up to Gosforth.

What does it cost here on a bus? €1.80 or something?

So sad. I know it's probably the quickest way and they may not be in the right frame of mind but to do it to the drivers is low.

It's destroying their lives too.

Some drivers do take it badly but some treat it as a hazard of the job and get over it quite quickly. One of the reasons I would never be a train driver. You can be going along nicely and then you see someone in the distance about a mile away, hit the emergency brake, you're still gonna hit them, unfortunately.

You'd think with the collapse of car sales nationwide, they would grab the chance to promote public transport and reduce congestion. But I suppose they need the taxes to pay their advisors and pensions, that is more important!

less subvention + less passengers + expectation to keep routes open = higher fares. Quite simple really.

Indeed - one driver told me how he was traumatised after having to pick out body parts from under a train.

I couldn't believe he was the one doing it and not a paramedic or fireman.

It's high time bus eireann and the unions that control it come in for close criticism.
After all it is the taxpayers who are subsidising their operations.

New years day 1012, Limerick bus depot.
No drivers were available to fill their shifts on that day. The union states that working that day is optional.
All drivers are payed full holiday benefits for that day,even when not working.

Bus eireann had to bring in 30 outside private bus contractors to ensure a service for the public on new years day. (At a cost to the taxpayers)

Maybe it is time to privatise this service and take away the absorbant benefits available for the drivers.

I hate the bus because I ger travel-sickness accentuated by the bumpiness and the horrible air-conditioning. In contrast I rather enjoy rail-travel. But as I have never been on the LUAS and haven't been on the DART in 20 yrs, I choose Iarnroid Eireann.
