      I was in a bus station in Berlin that had toilets with an electronic system for cleaning the seats. This is not standard.

        No major city or town in western Europe would tolerate this, with the possible exception of some parts of Britain. Traditionally, you pay a few cent to the attendant on the way in for the trouble of maintaining and supervising the facilities. “Ah, shur” is at the core of the problem.

    …. Bus Eireann needs to put all its resources into paying 50k plus a year to its drivers (plus pension) – occasionally – about once a month – they actually arrive on time; one or two even know how to operate Leap cards, a year after their introduction…

    And this is the problem. We have CEOs of all these Irish semi state companies on serious pay scales for an expensive service of which the customer is never part of their business model.

      That’s it. The bosses are creaming every cent out of these semi-states. I bet they’ve never had to use the public facilities.

      A sanitation solution which is, ironically, more sanitary than the bus station facilities pictured above.

    Busaras toilets have been dire for years, I was always terrified if I had to use them. Recently started getting the train from Connolly and I got the biggest surprise when I had to use the toilets a few weeks ago. Spotlessly clean, tidy, well lit and well maintained. They’re in the same area of the city and I assume have the same social problems etc but Busaras could take some tips!

      Yeah, basically this.

      If Connolly can do it and they are 3 minutes leisurely stroll away, then someone is being a dick in Bus Áras

    A few years back they set up a turnstile system charging 20c, presumably in an attempt to stop dealers and rogues out. Unfortunately that stellar plan fell apart due to the fact that anyone under 27 stone could easily squeeze around the bars.

    They also need to ban people smoking outside the main doors, its a pathetic sight seeing all those sad souls sucking on fags outside the main enterance, very 3rd world.

    Those toilets are a good anaolgy for bus eireann as a whole, (hole, get it ) and to a greater or lesser extent the rest of “moderdin” ireland.

    When you just have blue lights to stop junkies shooting up, instead of not letting junkies in there in the first place, you know you’ve given up.
