Who did they expect would live in all these apartments?

Anyway I think a new entrance to Kent is welcome. Also did anyone see the new ticket barriers they have installed in Kent? Just like the ones in Heuston.

Just in time for the expansion of the LEAP card scheme, coming our way late 2013/early 2014. T

Entrance looks nice to me. Can't imagine why one would build some victorian arch as an entrance to the station. We already have the countryside wrecked with these laughable faux-georgian McMansions without the transport system following the same lead. Check out the new entrance to London Bridge station or King's Cross next time you're there. Very nice.

Looks shit. Like part of an aircraft fuselage that dropped out of the sky.

Tried it for the first time today. So the 205 goes to the back and beyonds in behind the train station then you have a bit of a walk to the entrance. Then you have to go down a level to then go up a level which pointless. The underground concourse has ticket machines that decline all credit cards and on the way up there are pointers to platforms 1-4 and to 5 but nothing tells you which destinations are served by which platforms.

So we went to fota and on the way back said 'right lets see if its easier now that we know what we're doing' .. so down we went again the way we came in (following the 'Bus' ) sign ... where the tunnel we went down to was marked 'No entry. Execept emergency' .. which is actually the way to the buesses.

Christ. Only in Cork like!!

1. "Back and beyonds"? It's closer to the city centre.
2. "Bit of a walk to the entrance". The bus stop is 50 metres from the entrance. 50. If that's now classified as a "bit of a walk" then I don't know what to say.
3. "Then you have to go down a level to then go up a level which pointless". Of course you have to go down and then up to get past the little issue of the rail tracks. What would you expect to happen??
4. "The underground concourse has ticket machines that decline all credit cards". Agree on this, they've been in and out of order for weeks. Painful.
5. "On the way up there are pointers to platforms 1-4 and to 5 but nothing tells you which destinations are served by which platforms". There are screens in the entrance area with time, destination and platform for upcoming departures. You must have missed those.
6. Use this daily for my commute and never saw the No Entry sign. Will take a look next week week when there.

You must have been fucking exhausted from the walking below in Fota so if you found the walk from the 205 stop to the station that much of an ordeal.

They should move the bus station over to Kent station now and also make all the buses who currently use Patrick’s Quay use it as. welll. Then sell the bus station and use the money on public transit infrastructure at Kent station
Make it a municipal transit hub
