Kildare County Council will invite representatives of Irish Rail and the National Transport Authority to a meeting to discuss a number of issues that have been highlighted by disgruntled customers in recent months.

The council are to issue a a letter of invitation to Irish Rail and the National Transport Agency after Cllr Mark Stafford proposed the idea, and they will seek discussion on a range of topics that include fare prices, parking and station facilities.

This will relate to the Kildare Town and Newbridge areas as the motion was proposed at the latest meeting of the Kildare-Newbridge Municipal District. There has been angered expressed by a number of rail users in the south of the county following the fare restructuring for Sallins earlier this year which reduced the price of an adult single ticket to Dublin to just €4.60, while it remains €15.05 for an adult single ticket from Newbridge to Heuston Station in Dublin.

The issue with parking at Newbridge train station has also been a controversial one in the past due to the numbers of cars being clamped there.
