My main concern is DART or other stations within the SHZ that require you to tag the ticket and pass at the barrier. How does the companion get through the barrier at either or both ends if h/she has not got a ticket because ticket office is closed!
You'd have to be nimble and quick to follow the FTP holder through the barrier, and it doesn't sound right either!
I had this experience at Tara Street, where there is no ticket office. I asked a staff member how I could get a ticket for my wife and he told me that we both had to get through the barrier together. There was no open barrier and he didn't offer to open one for my wife either. When we arrived at Malahide we had to do the same again to exit.
Fortunately there was a ticket office open in Malahide for our journey home. That is the one and only time I have taken my wife on the DART with my FTP.
