Got the train blues? Your commute is about to get a WHOLE lot easier


Ah, the morning commute. 

We will never get used to being packed onto the train like sardines and sweating by the time you get to your destination even though its -2 degrees outside.

And let's not forget the various questionable odours, ESPECIALLY if it happens to be raining. 

Well, we may not be able to solve all those problems but the Minister for Transport is putting in an expanded DART service for 2016 which might just make that commute slightly more bearable. 

Due to a serious increase in passenger numbers on all commuter routes, our good ol' Minster Paschal Donohoe has proposed DART services that will run every ten minutes during the week with a more reliable service put in place for the weekend. 


And for those who look to avoid the commuter scrum, DART services will operate from earlier times on mid week mornings.

That's right, you will be able to get a train from 5:50am from Malahide, 6am from Howth and 5.35 from Bray! 

And Minister Donohue is delighted. 

“Proposed changes – which will see DART services running every 10 minutes and for longer hours – will be great news for customers as it should mean less congestion on carriages at peak times and enhanced reliability, both of which will be welcomed."

Every little helps!
