The possible market share of the coach competition is small as they don't have the capacity to actually take on Irish Rail's position
Looking at journey time reductions of 10-20 minutes on Dublin Cork in Dec/Jan
Ignore the rubbish coming out of the Independent as it doesn't stack up, if everyone has defected to the bus, why are Bus Eireann's numbers also down? Baring in mind for most routes Bus Eireann has no private competition
The fall in passenger numbers actually happened 3 years ago, before bus competition really arrived. Some routes the numbers are actually up.
