Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport
Revised National Development Plan: Discussion
Ms Anne Graham:
We are very much aware of the issue because it is raised with us constantly and on an annual basis. We try to ease the difference between the short hop fares, which are generally in commuter zones, versus longer distance fares, which are generally InterCity fares. We have been trying to ease that and are also undertaking a full review of rail and bus fares to set up a structure that will work across our public transport system for longer distance fares. Given what we are doing and are going to implement in terms of DART expansion, it is relevant that we look at the fares again.
