The demand problem will only get worse as they
1- Increase fares
2- Increase parking charges
3- reduce services both from commuter stations and from Heuston to city centre.
The amount of people that the service (if I can call it that) now suits is reducing by the day. I'm now noticing a number of people who I used to see on the train now on the bus. Its like IR want to kill the commuter train service and only have an intercity service.
