JJ Kavanagh 06-KK-11, Dublin Coach 04-D-22822, Bus Éireann SP119 , James Fintan Lawlor Ave Portlaoise, 17-04-2017
The reason the Bus Éireann strike could have long term effects on the future of the company. No longer are they a monopoly supplier in a controlled market.
Of the three services shown here, for journeys to and from Dublin Airport BÉ are the most expensive (and never offer seat sales from the Midlands), and have the shortest operating day. The service is of no use for anyone requiring a morning flight from the airport, or arriving after around 1900 hours coming back. Dublin Coach has the widest (and most frequent) service, albeit scheduled slightly slower as it covers sections of route abandoned by BÉ, while JJ Kavanagh provides services which do connect with the early and late flights. It is little wonder Expressway is losing money.
