VIDEO: Commuters open up to Independent.ie
It's the end of one of the most depressing weeks of the year. After a lengthy break from Christmas, thousands of people from around Ireland are back on the rail and bus commuting in and out of Dublin City on a daily basis.
Announced in 2005, the Transport 21 scheme aims to make commuting a little easier for these commuters, who often face packed carriages, a lack of carriages and pushy fellow-commuters. The plains was designed to greatly expand Ireland's transport network with an estimated cost of around €34 billion initially attached to the plan.
One of the major factors was changing the DART system to a two-line system which crosses the city, as opposed to the coastal-centric system which it is known for.
Independent.ie speak to some DART commuters on what they like and what they want changed.
