This week we had a cheeky little party on the Dart train in Dublin… early morning commuters got a free party they weren’t expecting!

Hey Irish Rail “Do you want your receipt?” option or old school bin close by would avoid this mess at every DART station

Update:

In fairness.

I got on the [south-bound Dart] train at Lansdowne Road this morning and found a purse on the seat with some money in it. Shouted out at the platform before we left the station but no one was there. Have left a message at Irish Rail but they didn’t exactly seem mega efficient so thought I’d put it out here.

Anyone?

When is a commuter town not a commuter town?

When the Dart says so.

The Labour Party in Kildare is running a petition seeking fair train fares for Newbridge commuters.

It currently costs €3.56 to travel from Heuston to Sallins.

It costs almost 4 times more (€15.05) to go the final 7 minutes to Newbridge – a very expensive 7 minutes of travel.

The reason: Newbridge is not in the official ‘Short Hop Zone’ (the Dublin area rail network) despite clearly being a commuter town in the Dublin area

Fight!
