In my opinion, this route should not be called the 53B bus as this suggests it is a service bus provided by Dublin Bus and should therefore accept all passes and standard bus fares should apply. However, having the used the service, no passes are accepted and a fixed fare of €2.50 applies. The bus driver told me that Irish Ferries contract the service from Dublin Bus.
To avoid confusion with it being a regular service:
it should not have a route number and it should not be operated by Dublin Bus.
Dublin Bus operates standard services and fast services to the airport and all accept passes. The same logic should apply to port services.
StenaLine offers a free service to Dublin port from a private company.
