Irish Rail train
Rebecca Daly reports in The Irish Times…
Irish Rail commuters have expressed anger over its refusal to allow the use of reusable cups on train services.
While InterCity trains offer catering, it is against company’s policy for passengers to receive hot drinks directly in reusable cups.
“We cannot currently accommodate [passenger] keep cups on our service,” Irish Rail spokeswoman Jane Cregan said.
This was due to staff health and safety concerns and the fact of a limited supply of water on train services, she said.
Irish Rail latté again with waking up and smelling the coffee about the environment. Look how long it took to get "Do you want a receipt?" on their ticket machines… #todaysor @broadsheet_ie @IrishRail https://t.co/DOMLmZEJOH
