What a load of crap. I live in Dublin (unfortunately and not for much longer) and use the Luas from Heuston to Connolly. Yes it is cramped, but the service is regular, and cramped conditions for a 20 minute ride is quite acceptible. Have you ever lived in a big city such as London, Paris, Tokyo. Well if you had you would realise that cramped conditions during peak hours is quite the norm… Dublin as a small city has had huge investment in its infrastructure which has arrived at just making matters worse. The Dublin rail commuter solution could be solved if there was some intelligence behind the scheduling of darts and commuter trains.

Yesterday I waited for a dart to take me from Eastpoint to Connolly. Two commuter trains flew past while I waited over 10 minutes for a dart. More intelligent use of commuter trains in the metropolitan region will resolve many of the existing problems.

Please consider the governments spend on Dublin in relation to the UK’s spend on Birmingham, a city with a greater area population which is four times more populous than Greater Dublin.
