Bus Eireann ripping off their loyal customers
In the past couple of weeks, ValueIreland.com has received numerous complaints from its readers about the way Bus Eireann is ripping off its annual bus ticket customers compared to those of Dublin Bus.
This is particularly upsetting for people living in the commuter towns of Meath, Kildare, Wicklow and Louth.
A reader from Ashbourne told us that their annual ticket had gone up 10% to over €1500 for 2009 with Bus Eireann.
Whereas if they lived in Balbriggan – which is further away from Dublin city centre than Ashbourne the cost would be only €980. That’s a saving of 30% but even more, the Dublin Bus ticket includes unlimited use on ALL Dublin bus services including Nightlink and Airlink which the Bus Eireann tickets do not.
