I seem to recall Leo Varadkar mentioning he was an admirer of people who "get up early" and go to work. Well, I wonder if he is aware that there are about 150,000 of those workers who are quickly losing any admiration they may have had for him and his Transport Minister, Shane Ross.

These are the workers who rely on public transport to reach their jobs early in the morning.

Many of these workers are commuters because they cannot afford to live close to where they work due to the lack of affordable housing, even for those who work long hours. Many rely on public transport because the cost of running a car is too high, even for those who work hard.
