Absolutely get your point on outwith the short hop.
Why the difficulty around the add on - surely it's a simple update? It shouldn't take months to sort out.
Last question on this:
If I renew my point to point plus 90/145/luas as it stands will I then be able to upgrade to the Dublin bus add on at the proportionate rate for the remainder of the annual pass when it becomes applicable or, more likely, will I have to wait until I renew my annual pass again?
