Re bendy buses: answer officially is anti-social behaviour on upper deck.
Re road pricing: I'm aware of the windscreen style pass system. But it would be subject to rampant abuse, that's all I was saying. Where would it start and finish.
Would it be the so-called inner orbital route (very roughly Gardiner Street, Church Street, Patrick Street, Stephen's Grenn) or at the outer orbital route (the circular roads and the canals)
If it was the outer, which would be only proper, there must be 200,000 people living within, many with cars.
My main point is say if one had cottage in Rialto and was entitled to windscreen pass. Knowing Irish people, all of a sudden, you'd have about ten people registered as living in each house for the purposes of free travel.
