I've started just stating the fare now
Yes Dave13,given the ongoing refusal of the Company to reinstate it's own Fare Stage markings,it's entirely possible that some
drivers are unaware of exact stage locations.
However it's also entirely possible that passengers may also be incorrect in this respect.
There is no "borderline",as you state.
A Fare Stage system is,by definition,a precisely defined method of determining the fare.
Each Fare Stage within the Dublin Bus network has to be a definitive Bus Stop (All of which are now numbered
One other item of interest for those whose boarding or alighting point is between
stage points is the following....
The number of stages travelled is calculated by deducting the boarding stage number from the alighting stage number
Passengers boarding between stage points pay the appropriate fare from the preceeding stage point. Passengers alighting between stage points pay the appropriate fare to the next stage point.
Without knowing the exact location of the stop "beside" Dave13's house it is impossible to confirm the relevant fare.
