The addition of Naas and Kilcock to the Short Hop Zone has highlighted the outrageous rail fares paid by Newbridge and Kildare commuters going to jobs and college courses.

A single adult ticket to Heuston costs €10.54 The Leap Card /Smart Card fare from Sallins and Naas is €4.80. There are substantial differences on all other ticket types too because Newbridge and Kildare fares are calculated on an intercity basis.

Commuters have little choice but to travel where the jobs are...usually Dublin. And many of us live in homes and estates that were marketed for their commuting suitability and proximity to rail services.

It seems that no one in Authority is interested that this costs Newbridge, Kildare and Monasterevin commuters several hundred euros every year.

Newbridge Labour has organised a PETITION to the Minister for Transport, and the National Transport Authority, seeking immediate action.

It's easy and very quick. Please add your voice.

Let's get a 'fare' deal for Newbridge, Kildare and Monasterevin.
