I couldn't agree more. Where it gets even madder is that this is somewhat possible through a combo short hop combo Bus/Rail/Luas (or any permutation thereof) yet if you live 6km down the line in Kilcock you have to buy two tickets. So you basically need to add a 1,200 annual point-to-point between Maynooth and Kilcock to a short hop ticket to achieve a Kilcock to Sandyford commute. Most people will take about 11 seconds to figure out that the car is a better deal.
