I feel quite strongly about the unconnected nature of the LUAS system. I live about 200 metres from Line B about 300 metres from the proposed Charlemount stop.
It is absolutely useless to me as it doesn't connect to anywhere that you would go to regularly and couldn't walk to. Many evenings I have come back from Belfast arriving into Connolly and said 'why doesn't the bloody LUAS connect?'
That is why I was determined to thrash this particular thread, it was an attempt to backslap Breanann for considering the potential for luas running later than existing services.
It should run late but it should also have been running late nights and not five years late.
It should operate late in a connected and integrated system.
It should be operated late by either Dublin Bus and Irish Rail, who would run it late even if it loses money. On the basis of societal benifit.
How can the state transport company be expected to operate at financial equilibrium or better if they are left only with loss making routes?
