Dart Fares Calculator Error

The journey Dublin Pearse to Salthill & Monkstown does not seem right to me on the fares calculator - it's coming up with a €3.72 fare adult leap card fare.

Change the start to Connolly or the...

Regrettably there has been no service between Rosslare and Waterford for about 4 years and before this, there was only one return service daily for some time before this, which was inadequate.

Apologies, in fact looks like there's an hourly service, Belfast to Coleraine (not every 30 minutes as I first thought) with a connecting service to Portrush which makes a single line possible.

Flooding Between Salthill & Monkstown and Seapoint

The Dart lines were under water again today after being battered by crashing waves at high tide.

I assume this does not unsettle the line once the water has drained off?

I have to say that I think it is a bad idea too for Ireland.

It shouldn't take any longer than 5 years to plan for and electrify a line. The lifespan of a train is significantly longer.

Travelled last week one day on the 16.25 Waterford to Linerick Junction train.

About 40-50 odd people I'd say used the service - more than I expected.

It was €40 for Dublin Bus, and I think that was 4 full days and 2 part days of strike action.

€4 a day certainly does not recover actual costs paid for alternative means of transport.
