Like Dublin Nite Bus:
- Do they only operate one way only and assume no one could possibly be wanting to go in the opposite direction?
- Perhaps they stop to pick up at about every 10th stop?

Not trying to be smart, just a bit of a bugbear of mine and late night Dublin transport.

Don't see a need for return workings, it would only cater for a handful of passengers at best and not worth it.

Default Brief comment re: Dublin Bus night services

I'm not sure if the Dublin Bus Nitelink is classified as commercial or as part of the public service obligation but either way buses would often be running along part if not most/all of a route on the way back to the garage/for the next run (where applicable) so better to earn a bit of revenue whereas an empty out of service bus earns a guaranteed zero.

Incidentally the three Bus Éireann Nightrider routes from Dublin operate in both directions.
