The NTA doesn't pay for Bus Eireann Expressway services - these are operated on a commercial basis and self-funded.

Really dowlingm - if Bus Eireann withdrew all of their expressway services that ran along railway routes, you can be damn sure that another private operator would fill their shoes, so I really think that is a pointless argument. There is a market for both services, which can be seen by observing the loadings on both (which you clearly cannot do as you're not in the country).

None of the services that will potentially operate from Kent Station will be in competition with the rail service - they will complement it.
