Not sure how they would respond. The bus is basicly a detour off the Limerick - Shannon route a few times a day* Even if they add more services they can't avoid the railway bridges and slow journey time.

*I have not looked at the timetable recently but it was always sh1te.

The train should be able to hoover up all these passengers if the fares are right, as the service is going to be much more frequent.
Hopefully alot of people from the Similebridge area will use it going to work in Limerick/shopping in Limerick on a saturday and getting a late train at the weekend for going out in Ennis. The bus to Limerick is fairly sh!te so if people don't mind paying more for the more frequent train, then it's all good.

Indeed, about 10 trains per day is pretty good.

I understand they would need permission.
