That explains why there is a difference, but to me it suggests a problem with the way it is approached.

Oranmore-Galway is a commuter journey albeit one that is often completed on InterCity trains.

Galway has chronic traffic problems, so a fares matrix that discourages use of the train is very unhelpful (and will apparently lead to 600m being spent on a bypass).

Anything from Athenry westwards should be classified as a commuter journey, in the same way that services from Sallins eastwards are in Dublin.

Not that I'm sure that it makes sense to have a point with a massive fare hike (as between Sallins and Newbridge) either though.
