The whole rail-only nature of point-to-point tickets is just silly. There are two expressway busses heading through Mullingar, Edgeworthstown and Longford after the last train and it would make perfect logical sense to be able to buy an add-on to get access to those busses.

I suggested this to the NTA a couple of years ago but you might as well ask to be able to take a sub-orbital rocket to Longford since Expressway is a "commercial" service.
Expressway is a commercially operated service - it receives no subsidy, so no need for quotation marks.

I don’t see how that could work in practice - you’d have other operators up in arms over it.

It could only work with maybe an extended 115 to/from Longford.
