Default Bray to Rosslare

Planning travelling 17.17 from Bray to Rosslare on a Friday night soon. Any ideas how busy it might be?

I'm under the impression that it is very busy from Connolly-Bray, but ordinarily busy beyond Bray. If you are boarding at Bray, I imagine you will get a seat, if not immediately, then quite quickly, as people will be getting off at Greystones, etc.

I doubt that. I travelled on the 16.37 Connolly as far as Gorey I eventually got to sit down at Rathdrum. It was really busy->Even with the fares gone up . I'll be driving in the future

I've used it a few times, its busy as far as Greytones

Third coach is the best location.

There is a large turnover of passengers at Bray

Depends on the weekend that you are travelling on. For Paddy's weekend it will be packed that Friday. If you don't get a seat at Bray you probably will at Greystones. Worst case would be Wicklow town but you definitely won't be standing the whole way.

Went for 14.17. Packed, didn't get seat until Arklow. Hate to think how busy later one would have been.
