  • Government Increase Transport Prices again in Winter 2014

    The Government and the National Transport Authority have approved more hikes in the cost of public transport which will see prices rising by up to 13%.

    Many people and commuters in Dublin West will notice a significant dent in their pockets once this latest price hike comes into force.  The Government should be encouraging people to use public transport instead of making it less cost effective.  These hikes will result in Dublin Bus cash fares being almost 40% higher than they were in 2012, while Rail tickets will also see significant increases.  Transport companies have expressed concern about falling passenger numbers, but consistent fare hikes will do nothing to improve the situation. 

    If this policy continues, fewer people will be able to afford the ever increasing fares resulting in even bigger losses in the public transport sector.
