    Maynooth to Bray for €1! Naas commuters getting fleeced.





  • Registered Users Posts: 322 ✭✭ Tomrota


    Given how bad public transport is in Naas, I highly doubt many people care. The politicians certainly don’t.



  • Registered Users Posts: 541 ✭✭✭ macvin


    Isn't Maynooth about 12km closer to Dublin than Naas?

    Why would a town 12km or about 50% further from a main city have to have a similar fare? I don't understand the logic.



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,238 ✭✭✭ pad199207


    I see the 90 minute fare applies to Sallins/Naas on the train



  • Registered Users Posts: 566 ✭✭✭ you2008




  • Registered Users Posts: 6,238 ✭✭✭ pad199207


    No I think the €3.80 fare still applies but any subsequent fares after that within 90 minutes are free. Ofcourse this is only available if you travel into town by train.

    I noticed this last week when I went to Heuston from Sallins/Naas and the fare was €3.80. But then the luas into Jervis was free.



  • Registered Users Posts: 566 ✭✭✭ you2008


    Oh I see what you mean, as Naas will pay €3.80 and Maynooth pay €2.00. seems make sense.



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,238 ✭✭✭ pad199207


    Get into town much quicker from Naas/Sallins too. So it looks like it’s €3.80 to the likes of Bray or Howth from Naas/Sallins, still not bad.



  • Registered Users Posts: 566 ✭✭✭ you2008


    Oh..... got it now, thanks for clarify it, no more fight for Dublin bike at Heuston 😁

    Very informative post thank you. Will go ahead commuter fares be reduced on May 9th too?



  • Registered Users Posts: 322 ✭✭ Tomrota


    That is great news and is a huge step in the right direction for those of us who are able to take the train from Sallins. Disappointed that since Greystones was added to the 90 minute fare that Sallins & Naas is not, considering they are virtually equidistant to the city centre.

    They really need to increase the frequency of the grand canal dock services. They are always the busiest trains and sometimes it’s impossible to get a seat. There are so many trains that terminate in Celbridge, one stop away. It only makes sense to increase these trains to terminate in Sallins. As they use intercity trains, there are no rails. They are not designed for standing so it’s a health and safety hazard to stand on them.

    Bear in mind, Sallins train station is not accessible to many. Pipers Hill (where there are thousands of new houses) is over 6km from Sallins train station. There need to be city buses connecting the suburbs of Naas to the train station. In Greystones or Maynooth you can hop on a local dublin bus which will bring you to the train station, get the train for free (thanks to the 90 minute fare) and whatever subsequent journeys you have. We have no local bus routes to the train station (and no local routes in general to be honest), and certainly none that are integrated to the 90 minute fare.

    I have seen that KCC are planning on implementing local bus routes which both terminate in Sallins train station with 30 minute frequency. However, I haven’t heard anything about it since. It is IMPERATIVE that these buses integrate with train, Luas and Dublin bus or else it is not helpful for the area to be honest as it would result in an extortionate price like the route 126 Bus. It must be the only train station within 30km of the city centre to not have a frequent Dublin bus connection or any bus connection.

    Don’t get me wrong, this is great news for Naas commuters. We (as one of Dublin’s largest commuter towns) finally have some sort of connection with the transport system and are paying a somewhat reasonable fare. However, there are lots of improvements we need to lobby for like integrated local bus routes, a bus route to Tallaght hospital/TUD tallaght via citywest business park, a bus route to Maynooth, DART extension to Sallins, integrated buses, cycling infrastructure to Sallins, a park and ride, and more.

    thanks I think you can take over Orla Rock's job now LOL




  • Registered Users Posts: 104 ✭✭ luckymusik


    You can start your journey with the train from Sallins/Naas for €4.90 and then pursue your journey with Dublin Bus at no extra cost from Drumcondra or Grand Canal for example.

    Apparently, this fare will be reduced to €3.90 from May 9th.



  • Registered Users Posts: 541 ✭✭✭ macvin


    The TFI 90 minute fare is indeed only valid from celbridge.

    The TFI 90 minute fare is a specific single item costing €2.50 (€2 from May 9th)


    The standard sallins leap card fare of €3.80 (€3 from May 9th) is valid for 90 minutes.


    Can't see the confusion

    Can someone recommend a pub guaranteed to be showing the GAA on Sky on Saturday evening? A few of us are going to Punchestown for a stag and hope to catch Dublin-Wexford if we leave before the last race or two. Actually, I am completely unfamiliar with the area, I assume it's a short spin into town, even allowing for race-day traffic?



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,238 ✭✭✭ pad199207


    I wonder if you got off the train at Adamstown and got the C1 or C2 bus into town would it work out at €2.30?



  • Registered Users Posts: 15,402 ✭✭✭✭ Mantis Toboggan


    Not really any good gaa pubs in town, probably should be OK with McCormicks or Haydens but if there's racing on they could be showing that, might be best to contact them in advance.
