The free buses for the Papal event are in addition to the city services.


So it's only the additional shuttle buses that are free and the regular DB buses are not?

I'm still waiting for somebody to explain why these buses must be free.


Vastly faster loading times.

It will mean all the tourists and country folk with their €50 or €500 notes for that matter trying to pay for the bus and grind the city to a hault.

It will make it hopefully easier to get around and people will ditch their cars.

I don't think I've heard more nonsense in my life than on this thread. Some people will go to any length to justify anything.

How many tourists bar Spanish students and airport routes actually need to use DB buses? The city centre all pretty manageable on foot and all popular tourist destinations outside the city centre (Howth, Malahide, DL, Dalkey, Greystones, Bray etc.) are all accessible by DART. The only that I think that might be popular with tourists is the 44 and 185 out to Enniskerry.

Will I get a partial refund or an extension on my Leapcard taxsaver since I'm playing for 365 days access?

There are a few hotels outside the city centre. Quite a few of them are on bus routes, not Dart.

I’d imagine it’s a lot more accurate than a straw poll of boards posters.


I doubt it. Everyone in my own statistically robust straw poll is a good little modern Irish liberal consensus paragon of tolerance, virtue & progress who rightly despises the Church (full of abusers, clapped out old people, and strange, earnest youths who won't fit in + go with the flow!).

Have people here been to major events abroad?At Euro 2012 in Poland, a match ticket entitled the holder to free public transport in the city during match day.A similar situation operated at Russia 2018
For the Ireland match at Gelsenkirchen in October 2014, a match ticket entitled the holder to free regional and city transport En route to the stadium and also was valid for the return journey.
I also think there were special transport arrangements for Londpn 2012 but I did not attend.
A match ticket for Euro 2016 also gave me free city travel in Bordeaux and Lille during Match day.

All of which had funding arrangements in place. This doesnt.
