Had enough of this yet?

This city has the WORST public transport system in the world. How often have you waited over an hour for a bus which ‘runs every ten minutes’? How often have you had to stand on the bus when it eventually arrived? How often has the bus been littered with chips and crap? How often have you gotten on a bus and seen graffiti everywhere, only to return a month later to see the same graffiti in the same place?

Funding for our bus system must be atrocious because we really do get a horrible service, not just a poor service but often a really nasty service. It really is such a turn off… so this blog is set up for you to say what bugs you about moving around Limerick, not just on buses but any form of getting from place to place in the city. I’m going to get comments from Bus Éireann Limerick office management and seeing as its election time, local politicians.

Please comment on the posts with your own little stories or happenings while riding the bus or what not.

The other day, I stood at the bus stop in Raheen to catch the 5 o’clock bus, it never came… nor did the 10 past bus, the 20 past bus, the half past bus or the twenty to bus… at that stage I went home because I realised no matter how hard I tried I wouldn’t be able to make it to the three shops I wanted. That really is crazy!!

Lots of discarded bus tickets on the 308 services lately. Don't people use the disposal bin provided any more.

The 8:45 bus to UL this morning left more or less on time, traffic wasn't very busy. It arrived too late at UL to become the 9:00 bus though, becoming the 9:05 instead.

Why is there no route map of the limerick bus system. How is a visitor to the city supposed to find out how to move around? Information seems to be on a word of mouth basis only.

Imagine the luxury of having a bus that ran every 10 minutes ... way out in the stix (i.e. Castleconnell, only eight miles from the city centre) we have I think five buses a day, and don't even think about wanting to get home any later than 5:45. Sure what would you want to do that for?

I just find it weird. Almost everyone in Castleconnell works in Limerick, and there's about 2000 of us with thousands more on the route into town. So why does it cost over €5 for a return ticket and why aren't there frequent enough buses for people who want to travel to work on them?

A banks is a financial institution that accepts deposits and channels those deposits into lending activities. Bank primarily provide financial services to customers while enriching investors. Government restrictions on financial activities by banks vary over time and location. Bank are important players in financial markets and offer services such as investment funds and loans. In some countries such as Germany, bank have historically owned major stakes in industrial corporations while in other countries such as the United States bank are prohibited from owning non-financial companies. In Japan, banks are usually the nexus of a cross-share holding entity known as the keiretsu. In France, bancassurance is prevalent, as most banks offer insurance services (and now real estate services) to their clients.

The level of government regulation of the banking industry varies widely, with countries such as Iceland, having relatively light regulation of the banking sector, and countries such as China having a wide variety of regulations but no systematic process that can be followed typical of a communist system.[url=]CLICK HERE[/url]
