Lightbulb Do you line along the Rosslare line & use the service.

I wonder could I ask all Rail users that live on the Dublin-Gorey-Rosslare rail line who are on the RUI site to reply back with the words YES. -Thanks Alot-

Yes. Dublin to Wicklow (return) about once or twice a month, occasional trips further south. I (very rarely) go to Rosslare to get a ferry.

Trivia - the photo avatar under my name is the milepost at Wicklow station, I took it one night when it I was waiting for a (delayed) train back to Dublin...

The actual answer is a little over 300,000 journey per year south of Greystones as far as Goery

Works out to be about 450-500 individual passengers per weekday which would appear to match up closely to the on the ground situation

I know this may sound stupid but how does those passenger numbers compare to Maynooth, Drogheda, Kildare lines.

Also could it be the case that the more services there are the more people that will use it as will find that extra capacity per say on the maynooth will disappear as the year goes on.

I live near Sandymount station, that technically counts, although I don't stray off the DART for the most part.
