On the contrary, the reaction locally has been hugely positive with multiple other schools looking at starting their own cycle bus (that's the actual name, not cycle train).
As for being "inconvenienced", what you are talking about is a road with cars going about 5kmh at this time of the morning.
Locally, nobody is against this and its being seen as a way to motivate the council into finally put in proper, segregated cycling infrastructure.
They are currently finalising plans for additional cycle buses in Remore and Oranmore.
One is starting shortly in Limerick too.
